The Manhattan Transcripts are theoretical propositions executed through drawing.

Made between and for consecutive exhibitions, the four episodes transcribe imagined events in real New York locales: The Park uncovers a murder in Central Park; The Street Border Crossing chronicles the movement of a person drifting through violent and sexual events on Forty-second Street; The Tower The Fall depicts a vertiginous fall from a Manhattan skyscraper; and The Block illustrates five unlikely events occurring in separate courtyards within a city block. The event, in particular, is the figurative origin of architecture itself, through which Tschumi proposes an architecture of difference and opposition rather than synthesis and totality.

The tripartite mode of notation [used in The Manhattan Transcripts]. However precise and generative they may have been, each implies a logical reduction of architectural thought to what can be shown. They are caught in a sort of prison-house of architectural language, where the limits of my language are the limits of my world.

Any attempt to go beyond such limits, to offer another reading of architecture, demanded the questioning of these conventions. Made between and for consecutive exhibitions, its four episodes transcribe imagined events in real New York locales: The Park uncovers a murder in Central Park; Episode 2: The Street Border Crossing chronicles the movement of a person drifting through violent and sexual events on 42nd Street; Episode 3: The Block illustrates five unlikely events occurring in separate courtyards within a city block.

Each of these fields correlates to a graphic device employed, in varying degrees of collapse, in the work’s four episodes: While Episode 1 isolates each device in discrete frames, Episode 4 integrates the architectural drawing with movement notation. The event has become the tchumi of the transcipts image, and the figurative origin of architecture itself. Using film techniques such as the jump cut and the tracking shot to go beyond architectural conventions of representation, Tschumi proposes an architecture of difference and opposition rather than of synthesis and totality.
