He is looking for a dynamic definition of architecture and experience of urban space. It is only the first part of MT3 that escapes this normalising tool.

Any attempt at building transcripta compromise his architecture. I found the overall logic a struggle to fully understand. Installation views We used machine learning to identify this work in photos from our exhibition history. Architecture is not simply about space and form, but also about eventaction, and what happens in space.
Each of these fields manjattan to a tranxcripts device employed, in varying degrees of collapse, in the work’s four episodes: Eager to represent the dynamic component of architecture, he uses notations of movement with dashed lines and arrows indicating a direction; he also uses dotted line to represent the underlying structures. The Manhattan Transcripts differ from most architectural drawings insofar as they are neither real projects nor mere fantasies.
