Bill Rankin, 2000

Inspired a bit by Rem Koolhaas's Floating Pool project, I wondered what would happen if Manhattan itself decided to take a tour of the oceans, stopping at other cities to refuel and have a good time. Overwhelmed by LA's vastness, Manhattan decides to stay offshore, while it snuggles in close and completely overwhelms Boston (and inadvertently obliterates Logan airport).
