Eric Owen Moss introduces Zvi Hecker, setting Hecker apart from the superficial, loud, short-lived, and mediocre. Hecker discusses some of his earlier work. He comments on the importance of overcoming the sterility of a solitary idea which will not lead to other ideas. Hecker presents a design for housing and a commercial center in Tel Aviv which he started by integrating the geometry of the Gozo Citadel in Ferrara and continued by created geometries derived from the original citadel form.
