ODAUnboxing New York

35.00 EUROS

Unboxing New York is a collaborative testimony to the realities architecture faces in the evolving landscape of New York City. In a collection of 50 short texts, richly illustrated with detailed diagrams and photo essays, ODA weaves together the stories, inspirations, and methodologies it has developed over the last 10 years to challenge the city’s architectural conventions with an optimistic outlook. In a city like New York, dominated by regulations and defined by a strong post-recession development boom, the architect is bound by conventions and prescribed parameters. Code, market, and time are words as common in the architect’s vocabulary as context, proportion and light. Consequently, the architect’s power has been pushed away from fundamental qualities of living. Unboxing New York investigates these architecture topics to recover the power to design with quality of life as the number one objective. Unboxing New York is a behind-the-scenes examination of the changing shape of New York City since 2010 -revealing the forces, theories, and histories that have transformed the city, studying the common conventions that architects deal with as a result.
