Rank #1: 57 — The Reactionaries — 2/3 — Caesar's Palace without the Fun. In our second episode on Reactionaries, we explore the rejection of modernism by traditionalist architects and theorists in England after the Second World War. Modernism became the hegemonic architectural and urbanist mode in England during this period, and we examine those who rejected the consensus, and sought to continue the retreat into the past, designing architecture that occasionally verges on Caesar's Palace, without any of the fun. In this episode, we discuss Raymond Erith, the traditionalist architect who restored Number 10 Downing Street in the 1960s. We go on to discuss his pupil, Quinlan Terry, whose Richmond Riverside Development we went to visit and recorded our observations in situ. Their stodgy, and often unsuccessful attempts to revive and reconjure a classical vernacular expresses a political and ideological agenda that we attempt to unpack, and will go on to discuss in our final episode on the Reactionaries. As always, find images on our social media feeds, and footage from the trip to Richmond in a pinned story on our instagram.

Rank #1: Cheap and Thin: Richard Neutra and Frank Lloyd Wright. What is the psychological process whereby one person inspires and influences another? In this interview, Dr. Raymond Richard Neutra traces the forty-year relationship between his parents and the great architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Cheap and Thin: Neutra and Wright, Kindle available at Amazon. The author's father, the pioneer modern architect Richard Neutra, immigrated to the United States in the early 1920's with the dual motivation of working for his idol Frank Lloyd Wright and for exploring the American industrial potential for economical and light weight housing, schools, medical facilities and other "architecture of social concern." Wright's early cordiality changed when he characterized those projects as "Cheap and Thin." Although meant as an insult, the characterization revealed a recognition of the different direction that Richard Neutra's goals had given to the basic strategies that Wright had developed twenty years earlier: Neutra wanted to develop an economic and light way to deploy technology and nature for a happy and healthy life. The relationship between Wright and Neutra recounts family memories of visits between them. It then explores the substantial influence of Wright on Neutra and how Neutra adapted, adopted and added strategies and design features to gradually develop what was to become mid-century "California Modern." Cheap and Thin: Neutra and Wright, Kindle available at Amazon.
Rank #2: The Architecture of Happiness. Many architects are wary of openly discussing the word beauty – in Alain de Botton’s book, The Architecture of Happiness, he asks the large and naïve question: What is a beautiful building?Is it too much to ask of our buildings to aspire to that which we long for in our hearts? Many architects would answer, "Yes." Rather than see architecture as an aspiration of the best of what life can be, many see architecture as reflective of the worst of what life is. If architects do not think that buildings affect society and can contribute to the happiness and well-being of those who use the buildings, then architects devalue their profession and are saying that their work has no importance. Yet if architects admit that their work can affect society and make a difference in a users life, and yet architects insist on designing buildings that are confrontational and conflicted, then architects are knowingly contributing to the decay and dysfunction of society.In a world where we are constantly told how bad things are, architecture can give us hope about how things could be better. That’s an ancient idea whose time has come again. The Architecture of Happiness by Alain de Botton is published by Pantheon. www.randomhouse.com/pantheon/ And visit www.tedwells.com.

Rank #1: EA130: How to Build a Successful Architecture Firm That Works with Architect Declan Keefe [Podcast]. This month, we’re shifting our focus from technology to management. How do we build a successful business? How do we build the right systems and team? How can we efficiently and effectively do what we do as architects in the most profitable way? This week on EntreArchitect Podcast, Declan Keefe of Placetailor talks about How to Build a Successful Architecture Firm That Works. Declan spent his younger years focused on photography and fine arts before realizing that wasn’t the direction he wanted to go. He began to think about architecture as large-scale, “occupiable” sculpture, convincing himself that it was okay to transfer into architecture without compromising his creative path. While still in school, Declan found a job as a founding employee to start Placetailor, a firm that wanted to fully integrate the design and building process of architecture. Every member of the team had to have an understanding and a base skill set of being able to both design and build. Three years into the business, when he was a project manager and still in school, the founder of the company stepped away. Rather than allowing Placetailor to die, Declan stepped into the role of owner in 2013. Placetailor is working to provide a fun experience for clients by creating a brand with loud colors, snarky commentary, and relevance to the times. While splitting his time between design and working in the field, Declan realized that they needed to do some work to actually run a business. He put his head down in the office to figure out how to let people know who Placetailor was and how to convince potential clients that what they’re doing is a good idea. His plan was to transfer the business into an employee-owned cooperative. They began to test the boundaries of where architecture and construction met, and to figure out their roles in high-performance and energy-efficient buildings. How did he work to make that transition to a successful cooperative? Help each other to balance different strengths and weaknesses Incentivize with a three-year vesting period prior to becoming an employee-owner Test geographic and technological boundaries Strategized to streamline systems on larger scales for sustainability Developed bylaws as a cooperative, an operating agreement and general rules and guidelines for how they operate as a team How do they dream and decide on which decisions to move forward? A dream is born Decide how much time & money can be allotted to pursue that dream Invest in the idea first before someone else does Let ideas work through the architecture, development, construction and investment arms Prepare for meetings by trying to anticipate where different people are going to end up so the meeting can continue to think through impacts on the business Use digital minutes to track decisions throughout meetings Connect with Declan online at Placetailor.com and on Twitter @placetailor & Instagram.

Rank #1: Andrés Jaque in Conversation with Amale Andraos. Dean Amale Andraos speaks with faculty Andrés Jaque, director of GSAPP’s MSAAD program and founder of the Office for Political Innovation, an architectural practice based in New York and Madrid. They discuss Jaque’s current projects and the need for immediate action in pushing the boundaries of architecture and design to reinvent the way our spaces work.“When we look at newspapers, everything that’s on the front page has architecture in it. If we think of geopolitical tensions, environmental issues, projects like the Green New Deal, all of them are loaded with architecture and design. Immediately, it’s a discussion about housing…territory…fences…borders. It’s a discussion about architectural elements.” - Andrés Jaque
