Midtown is a living, breathing museum of skyscraper architecture, spanning nearly a century. It's a marvel of architecture unlike anywhere else. This series documents the first moments of skyscrapers are being torn down to build larger/taller ones, one where supertalls have begun littering the skyline.

Manhattanism is a concept described by architect Rem Koolhaas in his book Delirious New York (1978).

"Manhattanism is the one urbanistic ideology that has fed,
from its conception, on the splendors and miseries of the metropolitan condition –hyper-density– without once losing faith in it as the basis for a desirable modern culture. Manhattan's architecture is a paradigm for the exploitation of congestion."
