Olin describes his interest in working with the “lost space” and “looseness” of contemporary cities. He documents the process of carving out a new civic space in Seattle.

Sorkin describes several urban design projects he has worked on, including senior housing of the future, projects for Jerusalem and Beirut, and alterations to the University of Chicago campus. Sorkin’s master plans employ, in places, deliberate vagueness to suggest a range of possibilities. In all the projects, Sorkin stresses ecological and climactic considerations.
