Especially between 1890 and 1940 a new culture (the Machine Age?) selected
Manhattan as laboratory: a mythical island where the invention and testing of a metropolitan lifestyle and its attendant architecture could be pursued as a collective experiment in which the entire city became a factory of
man-made experience, where the real and the natural ceased to exist." (Rem Koolhaas, Delirious New York)

Manhattan is this dream city, this background that became the backstage of the mechanical culture. Artificial paradise, big machine able to produce all those fantasies that has captivated the 20th century : Chrysler Building,
Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, Empire State Building, Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center...
But sometimes a fissure appears, a failure in the program, a crack that allows us to see beyond. We find ourselves off stage, in the cogs of the machine. At this point, the city is revealed in a different temporality throw its ruin, its disappearance, its vestiges. The dream falters, the
illusion shatters, the fiction is exposed.

This exhibit shows aroud 80 panoramic photographs, 12 which are large format (120x60cm). These photographs were taken during the summer 2001, before September 11th.

Born in Barcelona in 1973, AdriÓ G.S is an architect and photographer.
