STIRLING, James

Current Projects

Series:
Date: Wednesday 13 January 1982
Time: 00:00
Venue:
Running time: 104 mins

James Stirling discusses several current projects and attempts to position them in relation to his earlier work. Stirling trained in the Beaux Arts tradition at Liverpool University. He worked with Lyons, Israel & Ellis in London before forming a partnership with James Gowan. Influenced by the later designs of Le Corbusier and the theories of the Smithsons, Stirling and Gowan produced several influential buildings which started a trend toward brick and exposed concrete. Stirling's early designs often emphasized concept over aesthetic and utilitarian needs. Occasionally criticized for his ability to continually alter his fundamental architectural principles, Stirling uses an experimental design approach that shows little commitment to one particular style. Introduced by Kenneth Frampton.
