Brendan MacFarlane discusses more projects, including the Frac Centre in Orleans, the Taipei Performing Arts Center, and the ?cole Sup?rieure des Arts et de la Communication (ESAC) in Pau. These projects propose using existing elements to inform performative surface manipulations, that suggest ebbs and flows of circulation and program.

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.
Maltzan concludes with two projects which, in addition to strong urban engagement, address social interaction and environmental intent through negotiations of structure and geometry. For an Art and Science Museum in Fresno, CA Maltzan creates a social overlap with the city by floating the building to generate a shaded public plaza and exposing the building’s underbelly while establishing seamed openings both through and into the building. Lastly, for Pirelli in Milan, he creates a mid-height bridged connection between two office buildings, both allowing for flexibility in use and tenancy within the two structures and generating new social connections through the use of an open bat-wing truss.
