A new perspective of Manhattan

Berg, 2009 A project by Jack Schulze and Matt Webb concerning “speculative projections” of Manhattan’s dense urban space. The city seems to curve vertically away from the observer, skewing relative distances. Major streets are picked out in yellow, notable buildings in gold and parks in green; the labelling seems to float at the forefront of the image at first, but transforms to a standard map as the image flattens out with the gradient
