Maltzan continues his lecture with a discussion of work conducted outside of Los Angeles. He presents a pavillion-bookstore designed for a park in Jinhua, China as an invited component of a conceptual master plan by Ai Weiwei. He continues with a description of a competition entry for the Canadian Museum of Human Rights, a project which he attributes to a shift in his work from organization based on predetermined narrative toward that of an elastically connected open network. This interest continues in a master planning project in Milan which proposed a campus of buildings that engaged the edge of the primary site in response to difficult political realities emanating from the site itself.
