Designer and Architectural Philosopher Charles Jencks on the BBC.
But only through January 1st.


He’s good on Modernism. Good on Post-Modernism. Good on the strange shapes of today’s buildings that “don’t have any public meaning system.” He compares today’s icons to the enigma of the Eiffel Tower. He says the year 2000 will be seen like the year 1000 – a time of great “cathedrals.” And he’s good on Chinese Gardens.

-E, njoy.
