Through a series of case studies in Los Angeles, Sherman applies game theory to scrutinize the behavior of intersecting private and public interests, revealing an alternative logic of architectural composition. Making extensive use of diagrams, photographs, and a range of negotiation models employed within game theory, including pecking order, negotiated access, multilateral exchange, and tit for tat, he identifies the characteristic features and behaviors of this

new spatial logic.
