Breaking the Grid
Denig, Matthew Tyler
Publication Date:


Manhattan is one of the most well-known cities for its well use of "the grid," a rigid circulation and organization maintaining a vast variety of people. Programs and cultures made its way to sculpt the density on the peninsula of New York and how the grid is composed. Linear intersections on ground level create clogs in movement between transportation and foot traffic. in specific areas, such as Penn Station, where hundreds of thousands of people come and go a day, the grid does perform as the most ideal way to handle this output of travel and pedestrian activity. The Urban Interlace Project reacts to this and looks at what works and doesn't work in other pedestrian realms to create not a separation but weave its way through the area. This new infrastructure brings a new identity to a historic area and creating a new way of circulation. ( en )
