Eric Owen Moss introduces Michael Sorkin, stressing the concepts of asymmetry and freedom and the political organization of urbanism. Sorkin begins with a comparison of Woodstock and Auschwitz, in terms of organizing people, and the role of utopian ideals both situations. He articulates his fear of any utopianism that ends in homogeneity, New Urbanism, McMansions, and Humvees.
