Thom Mayne introduces Eric Owen Moss, and explains that to understand Moss one must explore his brain. Mayne does exactly that with a humorous diagrammatic dissection of Moss’ brain. He continues by describing Moss as “a person of words, precise and considered.” He concludes with a heartfelt characterization of his old friend: “Architecture is not what you do, architecture who you are, the essence of your being.”

Betty Edwards explains the research behind her first book about brain hemisphere functions. She focuses on ways to improve creative problem solving. She explains the difference between the L-Mode and the R-Mode, the verbal, analytic mode and the visual, perceptual mode, which is the fundamental basis of her theory. During the second hour of the lecture Edwards performs creativity exercises with the audience.
