Who Owns the Air

This project challenges monetized corporate ownerships of air and their architecture, often implemented through transactional practices such as Air Rights purchase and the carbon credit right to pollute permits. The future JP Morgan Chase building, the former Union Carbide headquarters at 270 Park Avenue, is intervened to explore the possibilities in a new spatial regulation that imposes the cause-and-effect relationship between often obscured air pollution by corporations and their highly visible Manhattan square feet.
