Bernard Tschumi’s Manhattan Transcripts are studied, copied, and manipulated to produce a new set of architectural ideas. Voids in the original drawings are extracted as volumes. These volumes are warped to create a new set of architectural forms represented as two-dimensional drawings. These drawings, read as oblique projections, are translated back into volumes as physical models, recreated as digital models, then reflattened as renderings. The loss and gain of information in this process results in a new formal and programmatic vision of the Tower.
The voids of Tschumi's interiors are inverted to create solid objects. These objects become architectural figures through a series of transformations.
