Stan Allen frames his lecture as a reappraisal of what was valuable about Landscape Urbanism, and its potential deficiencies. Allen considers the working variables in Landscape Urbanism with an attention to process and change. Through the presentation of several projects he shows how these variables informed his urban designs. These projects include the Taichung Gateway, the Yan-Ping Waterfront, and Gwanggyo Lakeside Park. He follows his discussion on Landscape Urbanism with a shift to smaller scale architectural projects including the Sagaponac House, Salim Publishing House, and Chosen Children Village Chapel.
