Urban Speculation in Los Angeles and Beyond [Image: Photo by Iwan Baan, from No More Play: Conversations on Urban Speculation in Los Angeles and Beyond edited by Jessica Varner]. Last autumn, I had the pleasure of speaking with architects Michael Maltzan and Jessica Varner for the new book No More Play: Conversations on Urban Speculation in Los Angeles and Beyond. That conversation was then included in the book itself, alongside conversations about the city with such artists, architects, and writers as Catherine Opie, Matthew Coolidge, Mirko Zardini, Edward Soja, Charles Jencks, Qingyun Ma, Sarah Whiting, James Flanigan, and Charles Waldheim. It will surprise no one to read that my interview is the least interesting of the bunch, but it's an honor even to have been invited to sit down as a blogger amidst that line-up. In many ways, then, the book is astonishingly extroverted. "Perhaps it is not a city," he suggests.

On the other, a square horizontal plane that runs along the middle of the full volume accommodates the permanent and temporary exhibition spaces and appears to float, giving the building an iconic and impressive image that suits its promotional purposes and future oriented character. The communal lobby space and the physical void space that accommodates it connect the ground to the sky and tie the entire building together; on the third level the science club, staff spaces and the planetarium are placed, offering exciting conditions for work, with views downwards towards the lobby and outwards towards the science park and the city. status: competition program: urban plan, science institute, science garden and landscape design area: Masterplan 11,66 ha, building 12.000 m2 location: Belgrade, Serbia
