Chronic(al) Intercept

The eulogy and evolution of Gordon Matta-Clark's Conical Intersect (1975). This un-submitted proposal was created in response in the 2015 OISTAT competition brief.

This is a retaliation to capital driven urban renewal: a physical intercept. Applied to the structure presented, the concept is 'constructive'. Chronic(al) Intercept draws from the existing. In a single cutting gesture both 'stage and auditorium' are created.
The spherical intersect shares no one axis with the existing structure. The 'collisions' create space without agenda, free in both form and occupational purpose.
