Wes Jones (March 22, 1989)

Introduction by Neil Denari.

Wes Jones outlines the ideas behind the Astronaut’s Memorial and a lifeguard tower. He argues that our world is entirely mechanical, hence an architecture that celebrates this should appeal to our subconscious.

Jones argues that Le Corbusier’s took modernism in the wrong direction by choosing abstraction and mass production as the form of expression for architecture. He proposes that technology can be mined for formal qualities.

Jones responds to comments from the audience on mechanization, regionalism, and the terms “bitchin” and “boss”.
