Abstract :
Discusses Walter Netsch and his relationship with the architectural firm Skidmore, Owen & Merrill (SOM). Argues that his brand of individual genius was dependent upon the support and resources of the corporate, bureaucratic firm around him. Suggests ways in which the auteur and the organization can coexist and, through this coexistence, produce mutations in both. Considers Netsch's architectural work for the U.S. armed forces, particularly the Air Force Academy Chapel. Refers to Netsch's architectural 'Field theory' - a proportional system based on matrices of overlapping squares. ;
