Cities and architectures develop through the stories we tell ourselves, and others, about them. These narratives redefine the city as a statistical entity or an ecological habitat, as personal fiction or as collective myth. Manifest, a Journal of American Architecture and Urbanism, has developed a series of real and para-fictional excursions around the New York-New Jersey metro area that expose the real – and fictional – motivations behind fragments of the built environment. These Para-tours use buildings as well as rooms and pieces of infrastructure to ignite critical conversations about American cities, their infrastructures and surrounding hinterlands.
