Written upon the forms of every city are the effects of conditions and rules which precede and influence the making of the individual architectures of which it is composed. No more clearly are these effects in evidence than in New York City.
Manhattan 2050 is a commentary upon general processes of urban development, specifically upon the city as a product of the piecemeal aggregation of architectures over time. To this end Manhattan is a subject for analysis and a site for speculative projects.
Manhattan 2050 seeks to occupy an interstitial space between architecture and other disciplines whose object of study is the urban environment and to establish a framework for inter-disciplinary communication.
