A vertiginous exploration of urban landscapes in the midst of transformation. “All that is solid melts into air” as legendary Manhattan venue the Mercer Center unexpectedly collapses in 1973, and cop cars burn outside Philadelphia’s City Hall in 2020. One pictorial side, one a rendering of a Hannah Arendt text taken from her the Human Condition.

This labyrinth book is designed to be either explored as a paginated book or unfolded and displayed as a double-sided print.
