ArchDaily has teamed up with the The Berlage to provide exclusive access to their newly digitized archive of lectures. The Berlage is a postgraduate international institute where some of the world’s most renowned architects, thinkers, designers, photographers and other professionals come to share, exchange and critically reflect upon their ideas. Over the last 23 years, The Berlage has built up an extensive archive of seminal lectures. Thanks to this partnership we can now share them with you. ArchDaily is committed to providing inspiration and knowledge to architects all over the world, so please look forward to monthly publications of these lectures during the coming year.
In this 1998 lecture, Elizabeth Diller speaks at length about the increased presence of computation and "tele-technological" advances, asking "how will architecture define technology?" Watch to hear Diller's thoughts on electronic news delivery, the blurred lines of art and commerce, her firm's intervention for CNN's headquarters, and more.
