Connections by James Burke
30 files
"Connections explores an "Alternative View of Change" that rejects the conventional linear and teleological view of historical progress. Burke contends that one cannot consider the development of any particular piece of the modern world in isolation. Rather, the entire gestalt of the modern world is the result of a web of interconnected events, each one consisting of a person or group acting for reasons of their own motivations (e.g., profit, curiosity, religion) with no concept of the final, modern result to which the actions of either them or their contemporaries would lead. The interplay of the results of these isolated events is what drives history and innovation, and is also the main focus of the series." -Wikipedia

How Buildings Learn
7 files
This six-part, three-hour, BBC TV series aired in 1997. I presented and co-wrote the series; it was directed by James Muncie, with music by Brian Eno. The series was based on my 1994 book, HOW BUILDINGS LEARN: What Happens After They’re Built. The book is still selling well and is used as a text in some college courses. Most of the 27 reviews on Amazon treat it as a book about system and software design, which tells me that architects are not as alert as computer people. But I knew that; that’s part of why I wrote the book. Anybody is welcome to use anything from this series in any way they like. Please don’t bug me with requests for permission. Hack away. Do credit the BBC, who put considerable time and talent into the project. Historic note: this was one of the first television productions made entirely in digital--- shot digital, edited digital. The project wound up with not enough money, so digital was the workaround. The camera was so small that we seldom had to ask permission to shoot; everybody thought we were tourists. No film or sound crew. Everything technical on site was done by editors, writers, directors. That’s why the sound is a little sketchy, but there’s also some direct perception in the filming that is unusual. BBC Presenter/writer: Stewart Brand Brian Eno, original music: James Runcie, Producer

"A modest attempt at developing a habitat that would be sufficiently persuasive for people to understand and endorse "frugality" not as a necessary evil but as a necessity fully capable of becoming a virtue. a necessity because the planet is "suffering" from the profligate consumption-unlimited pursuit of "happiness." A virtue because living reality, us in it, is the fruit of eons-long stumbling around that will eventually generate those agencies that would in turn bring about consciousness (via frugality). To make it very, very short: Can anyone conceive of any phenomenon even dimly paralleling the immense frugality of a performing human brain?" - Paolo Soleri

"I believe that the way people live can be directed a little by architecture. I would like my architecture to inspire people to use their own resources, to move into the future. although now we are more and more governed by the american way of thinking, money, the economy… I hope that now people will shift to a more european way (of thinking), culture, individuality, and that people move towards new goals. so for me to be able to contribute to this would be great."
