- description -

This book length poem is a tongue in cheek didactic monologue told from the perspective of a narcoleptic architect.  Through the discourse composed in heroic quatrains, I explore the dichotomies of the world such as individual liberty and social responsibility, imagination and reality, theory and practice while constantly shifting between the state of wakefulness and dreams.  As architecture is art that we live and work in, this poem explores the balance of aesthetics with utility to show how the ideas we construct around our lives direct our interest and may allow us to live in more effective and fulfilling ways.   The book is illustrated with 40 photos of the 56 Leonard Street Building located in New York City.  Although the poem is not about the 56 Leonard Street Building, this building provides a fascinating dialog between the directives of form and function in the endless facets of the structure reflecting the breathtaking wonders of New York City.
