Manhatten Schist The Manhattan concrete skyscrapers are the new landscape of Manhattan. They are built on top of the bed rock. While in old days, one of the earliest buildings, such as Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, which is right next to the site, is made of the bed rock underneath, which is the Cambrian Manhattan Schist. In our case, we are also interested to reuse the rock we dig out and build the columns and walls in this material. Besides, we also created glass columns to collect light into the underground. Here are eight different sensor columns that we developed. They work as structures, containers for infrastructures and sensors at the same time.
