A Retroactive Manifesto for Manhattan

Rem is foremost an editor. He works by selection and reaction to design propositions. He quickly builds things up – or gets others to do that – so he can choose, combine, rearrange or eliminate. He enjoys accidents, failures, missteps and restarts – although he doesn’t always show it in the nicest of ways.

His relentless tenacious optimism plows incrementally through ideas. We made at least 6 full “dummies” of DNY to facilitate our long distance collaboration. His rat-tat-tat feedback in phone calls and notes, as distinct as his uneasy genius.
