SETBACK CITY

And over the tracks, we find ourselves nearest the edge.

Sited on the Honeywell bridge above the train tracks at Sunnyside Yards, Queens, New York. This project looks to the future of city housing, in a condition of overpopulation in condensed urban environments. The project asks what does it mean to live together in a [CITY], separated from each other by technology? "SETBACK CITY" interrogates and highlights the technologies that divide us physically, socially, and emotionally through an over-emphasized structure, and seeks to define what architectural empathy can mean in a 21st century urban condition.
