a. Mapping

1. Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA, Bartlett, UCL) suggest the development of more sophisticated viualisations where description is the starting point, while “embracing” “the ubiquity of data visualisations of social phenomena”. An essential resource for the latest mapping methods: http://spatialanalysis.co.uk/

– Examples on city densities & flows:  http://mappinglondon.co.uk/2011/11/18/mapping-london-life/

– London social networking mapping: http://spatialanalysis.co.uk/2012/10/londons-twitter-languages/ & http://spatialanalysis.co.uk/2012/04/sensing-city-mapping-londons-population-flows/

2. This video introduces Urban Network Analysis concepts that are implemented in the City Form Lab’s Urban Network Analysis Toolbox for ArcGIS. It demonstrates how new data and analysis approaches not only transform the way we think about cities in comparison to each other, but also improve our understanding of urban environments at the fine urban design scale. http://vimeo.com/44728530

b. Spatial Intervention & Architecture cases

1. An example of the clash of evolution and emergence with the city-substrata defines the relationship between hyper-, infra- and super-structures can be seen in Usman Haque’s SkyEar (2004), http://www.haque.co.uk/skyear/information.html & http://www.digicult.it/en/digimag/issue-052/art-and-architecture-investigation-at-the-boundaries-of-space/

2. Greg Lynn’s ‘deep space’ dynamic design dealing with the issues of contextual specificity: http://www.digicult.it/en/digimag/issue-067/operative-transformation-part-2/

3. Eisenman’s Nordliches Devendorf 1992 (useful to see the indirect generation of architectural boundaries through interference, superposition & grafting processes:

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-pJgYjXOdIYQ/TZJZa5qFpRI/AAAAAAAABkQ/crQtykxKWpE/s1600/32.jpg (from Eisenman, Peter, Diagram Diaries, Thames and Hudson, London, 1999)

4. May also look at the Urban Transcripts 2011 Workshop on drawing the invisible city-layers of Rome: http://www.digicult.it/en/digimag/issue-071/italiano-drawing-the-invisible-urban-transcripts-2011/
