Wagner Jr. Park (Olin with Machado & Silvetti), Teardrop Park (Michael Van Valkenburgh), South Cove Plaza and the Irish Hunger Memorial (1100 Architect). We will examine schools by Cooper Robertson and Dattner Architects and residential towers by a host of architects, including Pelli Clarke Pelli, Gruzen Samton, Ennead Architects, Ulrich Franzen, Robert A.
