Abstract
In New York, the present becomes the past at an accelerated pace; the structures, marking fixed points in time, are both witness to and evidence of the havoc of such a process. The original Manhattan is physically distorted by the scraping, layering, and filling which man has subjected it to. This is a proposal for the appreciation and regeneration of this process - the exploration of three conditions of obsolescence, each varying in function, form, and history, each awaiting the role which it will have in a new point in time.
