Preston Scott Cohen – Stereotomic Permutations

Lecture date: 1996-01-29

Viewing perspective and orthography as instrumental to the architectural discipline – a discipline typified by its production of artifacts which are not self-identical with their medium – Preston Scott Cohen addresses the paradoxical autonomy of architectural form, asking whether it is possible for the disparity between drawings and buildings to correlate with the discrepancy between paradigms and their distortions.

Preston Scott Cohen is a Professor of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design. His practice and research is presently focused on redeploying descriptive geometry as a method with which to permute architectural form.
