Void possibilities: New York atypical lots – Vazio S/A

New York City is known for its grid. But in fact, narrow, triangular or very small lots can be found throughout the city. These lots are produced by diagonal streets, easements, and historical conditions before the grid. The lots, due to their atypical dimensions and area, as well as current zoning regulations, remain unused. Irregular Developments, a project by Only If Architecture, identifies and catalogs these uneven and weird properties throughout New York City, and speculates on their potential through models that demonstrate, at one and the same time, their possibilities and impossibilities. The result is an architecture both absurdly mercantilist and deliberately fanciful.
