Changefulness

This is a lecture by Florian Beigel and Philip Christou, one in a series of lectures titled Home Works.

Florian Beigel and Philip Christou of The Cass's Architecture Research Unit present Changefulness, the first in the series of lectures titled Home Works.

In The Stones of Venice, Ruskin wrote about what he called "changefulness":

"It is one of the chief virtues of the gothic builders that they never suffered ideas of outside symmetries and consistencies to interfere with the real use and value of what they did. If they wanted a window, they opened one; a room, they added one; a buttress, they built one; utterly regardless of any established conventionalities of external appearance, knowing (as indeed it always happened) that such daring interruptions of the formal plan would rather give additional interest to its symmetry than injure it."

Chaired by Robert Mull, co-curated with Zoe Berman.
