"We began with the concept, that all rental apartments in Manhattan originate in an apartment for rent' advertisement in the Sunday paper. Expanding upon this we organized the building into a series of 'newspaper sections',Recognizing that all residents predilections fall somewhere between ' Page 6 ' and the sports pages. The layered composition of the facade reveals this expressive vocabulary; Dialectical concerns such as voyeurism vs.introspection and exposure vs.protection can be gleaned through the treatment or the skin.Primitive fears over security are assuaged trough the rusticated treatment of the ground floor with a 'bridge',spanning the limenal space that divides city from residences"
