On the Water

The spatial products of New Jersey; objects, buildings, cities, and landscapes, are collected, categorized and dissected into separate architectural elements. These elements — New Jersey’s urban traits — are then combined and mixed to breed new off-springs for a future New Jersey City State. This project proposes a tool for urban speculation and experimentation, whereby the architect generates new urban entities (programs and forms) using units and elements of corporate power and expansion. As New Jersey outgrew its suburban nature, transforming into a new dispersed urban condition, its typical physical features — the generic products created by corporate power, have now become the genes for urban hybrids of a 21st century City State.
