But appearing at a loss is merely a common trick to conceal actions that are part of a highly coordinated effort. The elderly have been conspiring to realize a surprising mission. Volume 29 uncovers 'the plan', and identifies 'the locations', &lsquo;members&rsquo;, and &lsquo;assets&rsquo; of this vast urban takeover. Contributors include Yoko Ono, Francesco Bonami, Michael Graves, Paola Antonelli, Junya Ishigami, and Lebbeus Woods.</em></p>
