The metropolis is a collection of episodes performed by a mass of individuals inside skyscrapers, and the urban section becomes cartoonish stories of the citizens like a comic book narrative. Behind closed doors, everyone can behave exactly as they please without being judged. This project encourages the expression of individuality and hoarding of outlandish misbehaviors. One problem of the skyscraper is the repetitious overhaul of typical plans, which diminishes possibilities for self-expression, strangeness and ultimately cultural transformation. This project proposes a democratic gorging of architectural fairy tales into the interior of skyscrapers to embellish the metropolitan as a cultural incubator, with an over-saturation of fun, generosity, and softness.
