The transformation of a skyscraper into an urban block, or vice-versa the transformation of a perimeter block into a skyscraper, is achieved in this collective housing work by applying the figure of the hyperbolic paraboloid whereby two elevations of the original prism are diluted into a warped plane. The final form by BIG is a hybrid somewhere between the two typologies which adapts perfectly to the Manhattan grid yet preserves the qualities associated with European residential blocks.
