James Corner presents a series of projects informed by his research. A plan for the transformation of Philadelphia applied Robert Rauschenberg’s assemblage techniques to mapping. He describes a project responding to a splintered ground plane in Houston as an attempt to break from an existing axis in the plan. Corner presents work from his book Taking Measures Across the American Landscape involving aerial photography. He proposed to assemble an array of radio telescopes in New Mexico into a field operation.

She shows a project in which she implements these strategies to integrate land and structure, while also attempting to de-objectify architecture. She discussed the design strategies for the airport terminal in Zurich.
