Interior Archetypes of New York City
Close your eyes and think about New York City. What do you see?
There’s a good chance — whether you’ve seen it in the movies or are envisioning your morning commute, whether you’re imagining the old New York City or the new — that you’re thinking of the city’s iconic spaces. The clubs. The diners. The record stores. These places are quintessential New York City.
At the diner, there’s a certain familiarity to how far we can spin around on the
red-topped barstool. At the club, there’s a measured amount of space to boogie
on the disco-ball adorned dance floor. These spatial relationships are not merely
coincidental, but essential to the way we develop relationships with that particular genre of place.
Interior Archetypes of New York City seeks to capture the essential characteristics of the city’s classic spaces, first by documenting and then by creating our own.
Join us for a walk through the Club, the Bakery, the Karaoke Bar, the Music
Venue, the Diner, and the Record Store.
