Moore&rsquo;s provocation would be upped three years later when Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour led their studio at Yale &mdash; where Moore was by then dean of architecture &mdash; on the famous field trip that produced Learning from Las Vegas. Moore&rsquo;s acceptance of the intensely synthetic environment anticipated what French postmodern philosopher Jean Baudrillard, touring Disneyland and California a couple of decades later, would announce as the hyper-real. But already in the mid-&rsquo;60s Moore was registering the difference between the traditional old city and the new theme park."</p><p>INTRODUCTION BY SIMON SADLER.

Perez, one of the city's most important architects of the 20th century, passed away last week at the age of 81.[...] Taking over his father's architecture firm in 1975, Perez quickly made his mark on postmodern architecture, teaming up with Charles Moore to design the Piazza D'Italia in 1978. The public plaza [...]remains one of the most defining pieces of postmodern design to this day.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/79291468/a-blast-from-the-past-2-which-way-to-the-future A Blast from the Past 2: Which Way To The Future Orhan Ayyüce 2013-08-12T14:38:00-04:00 >2013-08-14T11:51:54-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/fc/fcg6xd9cxrkx5ufn.jpg" width="650" height="462" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Shelly Kappe moderates a panel consisting of Charles Moore, Frank Gehry, Helmut Schulitz, Peter de Bretteville, Roland Coate, and Glen Small.

Moore emphasizes the importance of the past.</p></em><br /><br /><p> <em>Gehry proposes new material possibilities. Schulitz questions the values of contemporary commercial society. De Bretteville discusses complexity and its various forms in architecture. Coate discusses diversity in the world of architecture, proposing that the discipline of architecture will cross traditional boundaries and link with other fields and disciplines, citing Christo, Robert Irwin, and Frank Gehry.

Moore</a> is indeed one of the pivotal architect and the author of the now notorious and often inadequately understood (and naively dismissed on formal grounds) Po Mo period of 70's and 80's.</p> <p> In early eighties, Moore's collaborative, still known and functioning to date as <a href="http://www.mryarchitects.com/mry_web.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Moore Ruble Yudell</a>, has produced a breath taking masterpiece in a Los Angeles suburb Pacific Palisades. The Parish of Saint Matthew or commonly known as Episcopal Church of Pacific Palisades was a product of architects' close collaboration with the community in the design stage and results were a perfect blend of architects' talent and community's approval.<br> As the recently graduated young architect, I remember my visit to the church when it was first opened in 1983 or thereabouts.<br> After nearly thirty years, I was again there last Sunday morning to pay my respect to a deceased friend of a friend and while I was there, I said hello to Mr. Moore who died in 1993.<br> I delightfully observed how well building...</p>
