Herwig Baumgartner and Scott Uriu discuss projects that are aggregations of similar objects, such as the City Futura urban plan (2010), the Coral Lamp (2012), a pedestrian bridge in Bangalore, a cruise ship terminal in Keelung (2012), and a soccer stadium complex for Rio (2013). They conclude by reviewing three current projects: a lounge chair, a house in the Hollywood Hills, and a transit center in Northern California.

Jesse Reiser presents Kaohsiung: The Harbor City, a design for a major cruise ship terminal and tourist center in Taipei. The challenge with this project was to find a way to deal with the existing industrial aspects of the port while introducing postindustrial and touristic uses. The strategy was to go from a two-dimensional to a three-dimensional urbanism which allows for simultaneous access to the waterfront for multiple user groups. Flexible use spaces are distributed throughout the project and can be combined for larger events.
