reading viaduct transformation

the reading viaduct, a derelict structure that hovers over the transitional neighborhood known as Callowhill, or the loft district, in Philadelphia, PA, remains as a remnant of the past railway age and the site of the new: a potential for metamorphosis. he nodal point analysis of moments within the site revealed a pattern of public interfaces, a network of lines was then established and reworked by two scripts; one a voronoi pattern that established new lines that were used as an overlay on the site. tracing the remnants of a past stream that is now the site of the sewage system, a cracking script was run along that trajectory in order to form the path of a new subterranean network - a new passageway through the site.
