Ramiro Diazgranados introduces Zoe Coombes and David Boira of Commonwealth. He argues that their work is well known and well published, but their name, their work is very different from the slicker names of other young firms. Their work suggests a critique of designers that apply the same formal desires at every scale. An
interesting contradiction is how they combine classical ideas of organization with baroque ideas of effect.

P?rez-G?mez reviews Renaissance perspective, 18th century Euclidian geometry, and
Baroque and Rococo uses of perspective. In the 19th century Euclidian geometry is questioned by the appearance of the descriptive geometry. P?rez-G?mez recalls how current architecture operates in a post-perspective world.
