Claude Parent lectures in French, and an interpreter provides an English translation. Parent illustrates his ideas by drawing on paper attached to the wall. Parent stresses the importance of movement in architecture, evoking the ocean and waves as a image of what he is interested in architecture. He calls himself a magician of architecture, and claims he designs illusions. Parent argues that Frank Lloyd Wright and Erich Mendelsohn were the first architects to incorporate the illusion of movement in
architecture.

Parent discusses the future of society, which he sees as a situation in which instability leads to continuity. He argues that modernism focused on the development of surface, instead of development of volume. Parent stresses that architects must invent their own limits, develop without boundaries, and think about habitations in terms of masses, not individuals.

Lisa Quatrale and Amy Landesberg explain their ambition for work that is emotive and tactile. Within their projects they seek to combine properties of liquification, ornamental structure, fluidity, eroticism, and instability. In My Eye Myopia, they explore the degeneration of the eye, especially the loss of the ability to see the larger picture. Other work explores the link between the eye and the complex window, the eyes found within modesty screens, and the qualities of liquids.
