    Jaeho JIN, Yongjae KIM, & Wongi SU: Penn Station has very small volume and disconnected with Madison Square Garden (MSG) and other programs above the ground.

    Toshiki HIRANO: In the world of capitalism, buildings’ values are determined on how much inhabitable space they have—which is to say, Total floor Area. Based on this logic, slab has been put in higher hierarchy among other elements in architecture since modernism, and a notion of stacking floor slabs has been the smartest technology of increasing the building value for maximizing the total floor area while minimizing the amount of structures and envelope area.

    KyuYoung HUH & jj YEO:

    The Yards ///
    Manhattan’s West Side has a character all its own. In examining the Western edge condition, affinities with building typologies of particular scale and program began to emerge, where the city’s anomalies and irregularities convene. This is where the streets protrude as piers into the water, where several strip clubs have opened, where sports are played in multi-purpose parking lots, where the hulking mass of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is permanently docked.
