UnBuilding is a sculptural model of a Manhattan you’ve never seen: an alternate reality where all of the manmade structures have vanished, as if yanked out like teeth. Left behind are the countless holes of different sizes and depths, the ghost traces of the missing buildings. Some are only one story deep, some reach surprisingly low belying the height of the structure above, some are massively deep to hold the unseen infrastructure necessary to support skyscrapers. Yet these spaces are invisible to us, and many are inaccessible even to a building’s inhabitants.
Status: Right now I’m in Open Data + GIS + Grasshopper hell. Next will be CNC’ing the model into a tree stump!
