After an introduction by Eric Owen Moss, Preston Scott Cohen describes his lecture as being about the “possible discovery of a relationship between architecture and complex geometry in which they agitate and alter one another,” and the “consequences of this kind of problem on the functional aspects of architecture.” Cohen presents the Torus House, the Wu House, a proposal for the Queens Museum Competition, and the Eyebeam Atelier Museum.

He presents digital studies of complex geometry, the Goodman House, and A New World Trade Center.

In a question and answer session, Preston Scott Cohen declares that his goal is to bring about his formal conditions “with cause” as opposed to artistic free will.
