Cohen explains that anamorphism is an influence in his work, because it represents “a departure from normative things.” He stresses the spline design for a performing arts center on the campus of Nanjing University in China, and discusses his design of an arcade canopy in Manhattan, which serves as an outdoor passageway. Cohen discusses the Tel Aviv Museum of Ar in detail.

Introduction by:

Preston Scott Cohen describes this lecture as being about the “possible discovery of a relationship between architecture and complex geometry in which they agitate and alter one another,” and the consequences this has for the functional aspects of architecture. Cohen seeks “formal problems, which in contest with particular functional ones elicit a different understanding of function, help us to perceive or project other possible arrangements. We can’t just work with the program at hand.” Cohen frames this lecture in terms of adaptation and the improvements in functionality due to adaptation or modification.
