Carradine characterizes the Euro Disney project as a decoding of European culture in a Disneyesque way. He notes that in designing for Europe, the Imagineers pay extra attention to detail, because Europeans are already surrounded by whimsical architecture. Carradine describes how their designs synthesize a lot of historical imagery and influences, such as world fairs, movies, boardwalks, and industrial archaeology. He discusses historical architecture references as a way of encapsulating history, and merging object, space and experience. He discusses the relationship between space, place and live special effects.

Introduction by:

Victoria Casasco talks about a collaboration with an engineer on a residential project in Barcelona. She discusses issues of privacy and planar relationships. She presents a project for a house in Los Angeles that employs steel-framed construction and concrete panels. Casasco examines a house in Florida, which takes cues from the traditional wood framing of Southern vernacular architecture. She reflects on the role of the architect in the world of tract
houses, commercial centers, and suburban planning. Casasco concludes by arguing that architects needs to re-engage larger scale issues and the public realm. Stanley Tigerman presents a series of projects recently completed in his Chicago office, including a housing project in Belgrade.

He presents in detail a competition entry for Disney animation buildings in Burbank. He discusses the topic of theming and his reluctance to engage with the project on this level.
