Collage City...taken literally, 1998.
Using the 3-dimentional computer model in Quondam's collection of Center City Philadelphia, it becomes possible to literally collage a city. By simply moving and rotating sections of the city to different locations and in different orientations, a whole now type of city emerges, albeit a very unlikely city that nonetheless resembles contemporary architecture in its presently most extreme manifestations. Furthermore, this collage of architectural computer data signifies just how easy it is to manipulate digital data, and thus open a vast window in terms of architectural design, both real and virtual.
