Paul Rudolph: Lower Manhattan Expressway

This exhibition was organized in collaboration with The Drawing Center and the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at The Cooper Union. The Lower Manhattan Expressway (LME) was first conceived by "master builder" Robert Moses in the late 1930s as an expressway running across Lower Manhattan. The idea was revisited by architect Paul Rudolph in 1967 when the Ford Foundation commissioned a study of the project. Had it been constructed, this major urban design plan would have significantly transformed New York City’s topography and infrastructure.
