A massive vision for Manhattan

Paul Rudolph's plan for a Manhattan Megastructure would have destroyed so much of what is New York today. So it will be fascinating to visit the current exhibit at Cooper Union until Nov 20 to see whether you look past the Moses-style destruction of Lower Manhattan and still find value in the somewhat playful vision of Rudolph. Or maybe you think this is as brutal as his brutalist architecture.
