The urban catalyst explores multiple levels of interconnectedness with new and existing objects, aiming towards new forms of community engagement. The desire for density allows the object to grow while preventing itself from becoming relentless. The ongoing system reactivates the Brooklyn Navy Yard and can extend onto Manhattan, giving the city a system that can power it. A strong re-engagement between the buildings and the urban landscape encodes new types of relationships of the space object.
