Griffin concludes with a discussion of several institutional projects. A proposal for a SCI-Arc Cafe employs a mobile element external to the existing building which would traverse the length of the campus on railroad tracks. She characterizes it as a recognition of the multiple centers of the school, and an indicator for campus activities throughout the day. A project for a church sanctuary integrated the existing space with new ducting and lighting. Griffin finishes with a school renovation, the limited budget of which required each architectural move to accomplish many goals at once.

Brendan MacFarlane discusses more projects, including the Frac Centre in Orleans, the Taipei Performing Arts Center, and the ?cole Sup?rieure des Arts et de la Communication (ESAC) in Pau. These projects propose using existing elements to inform performative surface manipulations, that suggest ebbs and flows of circulation and program. MacFarlane ends by discussing the relationship between the physical elements of his architecture and the psychological associations it creates to the users.

Introduction by:

Todd Gannon describes his interest in the phenomenon of obsession. He characterizes the unprecidented ability of contemporary youth to multitask as a new kind of hyper-attention. He attributes this to advances in technology and especially real time feedback loops. He talks about his interest in form and surface problems and the idea of translating linguistic techniques to material form. He discusses his interest in a surface that organizes itself in terms of coded form and language. Gannon presents a few of his own projects, stressing the ability to come up with creative ways of working within economic constraints. He argues that media can create transparency in ways which is seldom explored.
