One, who enters, makes a picture of himself on a movie, and these two images are merged to the background of Manhattan.


3 frames are located toward the river facing Manhattan respectively, the first frame is of a great screen reflecting the faces of people entering the site with hologram live projectors, as Andy Warhol once said: “in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes.”

The second frame is a screen for the outdoor amphitheater, with the seats located on the roofs of the lower indoor space.
The third frame is a void looking to the horizon line of Manhattan.


The circulation is formed in a three turn spiral. The theaters are located in the spiral. And the theaters are connected to each others in corners by large escalators which provide changing views to Manhattan and the surrounding. These three turns create three huge screens which lead to cohesive combination of indoor and outdoor spaces of Manhattan.

When a movie is on the second screen the first frame reflect the faces of people watching the movie or entering the site, the intersection of these two images present a live performance both for people watching Manhattan from the site and watching the site from Manhattan.
