Theme: VOLUME

At its simplest definition, the Modernist Movement reduced Architectural design down to its essential volumetric expressions – often stripping away the adornment of traditional precedents.  While materials and technologies continue to change over time, the strength of pure volumetric expression still yields a poetic and timeless composition.  A quiet simplicity reveals conceptual clarity.  It delivers an intensely satisfying conclusiveness.  Buildings and landscapes are often broken down into a sequence of volumes in order to humanize scale, create visual interest and variety, or choreograph a spatial experience.  We have asked our speakers to reflect on the significance of VOLUME in their design approach and across their body of work.
