Reyner Banham loves Los Angeles

Fantastico Reyner Banham in giro per Los Angeles!
“Una grande città offre ad un uomo la possibilità di sviluppare e imporre la sua visione del mondo, il suo stile. Per questo il giovane Shakespeare si trasferì in una Londra già nera di fumi ed inquinamento. Per questo generazioni di giovani pittori si sono trasferiti a Parigi… Ma soltanto una vera grande città riesce ad imporre quello stile di vita al resto del mondo…”

About paesaggisensibili

Architect and senior fellow of the McLuhan Program in Culture and Technology of Toronto University, I'm a member of the board of directors of the Italian National Institute of Architecture (IN/ARCH) in Rome, where since 2003 I am in charge of the Institute Master Programs. My studies are rooted in the fields of architecture and philosophy of science with a special interest in biology and anthropology. Key words for my research are: Man, Space, Nature, Technique, Webness, Ecology, Relations, Interactions, Resources, Energy, Landscape, Footprint, Past and Future. My goal is to build critical understanding of the present to suggest useful strategies to build the future.
