Visualizing Cities -- a global platform for visual urban knowledge production
Understanding our cities is a more complex task than ever before. From the expanding physical structures that form our cities, to the growing number of human beings filling those structures with life and meaning, to the almost invisible layer of digital technologies and data streams increasingly connecting all those elements. Many of the processes steering our cities today are not visible to the human eye. How can we make these underlying currents visible and understandable?
