The presentation will speculate on the influence George Kubler’s book Shape of Time had on American architecture during the 1960s. Special attention will be placed on ideas about hybridity and ambiguity, which take the forefront in Robert Venturi’s 1966 book Complexity and Contradiction in Architecture. Architecture’s historical echo chamber and the primacy of architectural form will be considered.
