  • 1990 ----- color ----- 28 min ----- vhs
  • (Upon Reflection series) Host Al Page speaks with Professor Douglas Kelbaugh, Chairman of the Department of Architecture, University of Washington. After a brief general discussion of the objective and subjective aspects of architecture, Professor Kelbaugh describes the positive elements that make Seattle a vital, dynamic city--a city of villages. He develops the idea that the automobile and television have changed the city. He explains the "pocket community" idea of urban development as an effort to control the suburban "smear across the countryside."
