I’ve been at Metropolis for two months now, and it’s been a great way to practice my writing skills. I’m an incredibly slow writer, usually juggling several writing tasks at once, but working at Metropolis has kept me busy and focused.
So here’s a quick round-up of some things I’ve been writing for Metropolis POV:
Archiprix 2011 An intensive architectural study of three U.S. cities kicks off in Manhattan.
+ Pool A new proposal for a public floating pool surfaces.
High Line Expansion An experiential account of Manhattan’s newest park in the sky.
Holding Pattern at MoMA PS1 A temporary playground with lasting benefits for the community.
Mapping the Cityscape An exhibition tries to showcase the myriad representations of the Manhattan grid.
For some assignments, I’ve had the chance to run about the city to check out things on view, so I’ve tried not to wait or ponder too long before documenting my thoughts. I’ve just generally had a lot of fun! Despite being away from home, this summer in New York has been as amazing as I expected.
