Numerous activities are performed throughout the day, which involve the confluence of lines of movement, events, and configuration of built-unbuilt space. Bernard Tschumi’s ‘Manhattan Transcripts’ details out a method of understanding the spatiality of such activities. This project graphically portrays the sequence of a particular confluence of ‘space, movement & event’ and captures the instances of an activity’s spatial & operational aspects combine.


The exercise pin-points similarities and differences between the pattern of activities performed in two different structures, Rachana Sansad, and the student’s residential building. The students read a chapter from the book ‘Skyscrapers’, watched the movie 'Playtime', and applied them in a comparative analysis of both buildings. Also, the method mentioned in Manhattan Transcripts’ are implemented in a sequential, formal & structured manner.
