Die Universitätsbibliothek der TU Wien bietet von 31. 10. bis 30. 11. 2017 im Rahmen eines Testzugangs campusweiten Online-Zugriff auf "Pidgeon Digital", eine Sammlung von Vorträgen bekannter Architekt_innen, Landschaftsarchitekt_innen und Designer_innen.
Information des Anbieters:
Pidgeon Digital is an online Audiovisual collection of illustrated talks by architects and related designers, which has been built up over more than 35 years. It is a continuing archive, to which new talks are added regularly.
Started in 1979 by Monica Pidgeon, the purpose of the series, which originally consisted of 200 illustrated talks, is to widen the horizons of students of architecture and design by giving them the opportunity to share the thinking of leading members of the profession worldwide to whom they would not normally have access.
This includes speakers such as:
Architects: Will Alsop, Edward Cullinan, Terry Farrell, Norman Foster, Jan Gehl, Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, Steven Holl, Kisho Kurokawa, Daniel Liebeskind, Oscar Niemeyer, Jean Nouvel, Charles Renfro, Richard Rogers, Harry Seidler, Bernard Tschumi, Michael Webb
Engineers: Anthony Hunt, Ted Happold, Frei Otto, Cedric Price, Peter Rice
Landscape Architects: Michael Ellison, Kathryn Gustafson, Lawrence Halprin, Peter Jakobsen, Ian McHarg.
Designers: Ron Arad, Ettore Sottsass, Alan Fletcher, FHK Henrion.
Pidgeon Digital also includes speakers who have died since being recorded, but who continue to have a lasting influence, for example:
Architects: R Buckminster Fuller, Serge Chermayeff, Maxwell Fry, Philip Johnson, Denys Lasdun, Cedric Price, A & P Smithson, James Stirling and Zaha Hadid
Engineers: Felix Candela, Ted Happold, Frank Newby, Konrad Wachsmann;
Landscape Architects: Roberto Burle Marx, Geoffrey Jellicoe, Peter Shepheard.
