Abraham concludes with a discussion of the Music House near D?sseldorf. He describes the site and a nearby art museum as well as his intent to create a building that would function as a pivot for the site to rotate around.The building is comprised of a suspended roof plate in combination with a monolithic structure. Abraham explains the formal organization as an intersection of a vertical void cylinder and tilted cylinder on the landscape. The opening between the roof and monolith are used to establish a horizontal view of the site. Abraham ends his talk with a both a warning against slaving in a corporate office or worshiping celebrity architects, and encouragement: “All you need is a piece of paper, a pencil and a desire to make architecture.”

Yung Ho Chang talks about his firm’s Other projects. He characterizes them as “miscellaneous.” He shows a pair of exterior metal sliding doors for an art gallery, and the interior of a restaurant in Shanghai with a tile roof designed to allow more light inside. Chang shows a transparent structural unit with bamboo veneer which is the basis for a project for the Venice Bienniale. He shows a project for the Victoria & Albert Museum in London which uses plastic paving blocks. The structure is an interior space in the museum’s courtyard. For another project Chang explains how his firm used honeycomb-shaped plastic modules to create the structure for a bathroom. He considers these plastic forms as a “major, major building material” for the future.

Peter Pearce presents examples of installations that utilize pre-fabricated building systems. He then reviews the fabrication process of these systems, addressing issues concerning structural performance and material applications. Pearce later presents the implementation of a roof system for an airport in Saudi Arabia. He concludes the presentation with an exploration of how the form of these structures reflect the distribution of structural loads.
