Delirious New York

Manuel de Sola Morales. The design, functioning and future of urban situations is explored in written, drawn and modelled work which builds on the legacy of twentieth century urban theory and is directed towards the development of sustainable cities.

Monday, 24 May Rem Koolhaas: A Retrospective Manifesto for Manhattan Written while Rem Koolhaas was a visiting professor at the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York, and first published in – written during a period of financial crisis, with the city government narrowly avoiding bankruptcy through a substantial federal loan.

A utopia that is indifferent to topography, imposing the mental over the real. The grid system in Manhattan predicted the future condition of the city; its two dimensional restrictions gave way to three dimensional freedom, and the millions of people that it now houses was envisaged far before a tiny proportion were even present. Any site could now be multiplied ad infinitum to produce a proliferation of floor space.

By separating the internal and external, the monolith of the skyscraper spared the outside world of everyday life, a shell housing layers of reality.

Entering a building in Manhattan, even changing floors, could become an act of moving between worlds.

During these playful journeys through Manhattans history, Koolhaas advocates his duty to modernity, if not to architectural modernism as a movement.
