Wang Shu: Geometry and Nature, 2011
Wang Shu's lecture when he was Harvard's GSD Kenzo Tange Professor in 2011. Almost two hours, it shows the difference between someone who is deeply embedded in a culture with a thousand-year old relationship between landscape and occupation, and our immigrant multiculturalism, dislocated from any sort of visceral understanding of either the past or landscape, and easily captured by ephemera.
Clearly he is distressed by the last twenty years of extreme development in China; traditionally there were no architects and planners, just builders within a system of landscape and landscape interpretation by poets and scholars. It explains Wang Shu's practice completely: he is not an architect, he is Chinese.
