Gottardi describes the “Prado y Neptuno” restaurant in detail, covering the architecture, interior design and furniture design. Gottardi argues that enriching the analysis enriches the projects, i.e. gets more immersed in Cuban culture, and as a consequence he enriches himself. The discussion after the lecture is mostly in Spanish.

Jorge Rigau presents the project for a cafeteria in the San Juan Botanical Garden, a cemetery in Mayag?ez and a new urban plaza for the city of Carolina. Rigau characterizes his office as creating contemporary architecture that follows and is inspired by traditional references through re-translation and not by copying.

Norten describes an auto dealership, the Televista Dining Hall, a housing complex “Brasil 75,” and a marketplace in central Mexico City. The auto dealership required integrating a number of dealers into one building, and then creating retail space. The Televista Dining Hall had to be a very lightweight structure since it was built on top of an existing garage. “Brasil 75” had a tight budget, so materials were deployed to give it a distinctive character.
