Monograph: In Motion

"In Motion" is a monograph composed of five projects located along Essex street in the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. Students were given one-word program descriptions: Health, Storage, Retail, Theatre and Hotel, and asked to interpret each program in a personal way.  Each project was completed in two weeks.

Stemming from my background in dance and street performance, "In Motion" explores the power of architecture to bring people together in new ways using a variety of techniques. Each building alters the way bodies move through space and thus proposes a new way of living within architecture and the city.

The following are excerpts from the final document.
