This blog is a research platform organizing projects, examples, and thoughts surrounding the idea of an urban mapping which reads the city as a network of individual activities and relationships in time rather than as a static form. This research looks at the city both from within and from above as kind of urban cat-scan.

Sections - Dissection of Time / Space


In "Living Section" like in a conventional section-cut drawing, we are able to view and understand the adjacencies of spaces, their configurations and relative proportions, etceteras yet more importantly because of the ability of the video camera to record activities in time, we are able to understand the fluctuation of programs that are happening across this section of the city over a period of time.

"Living Section" was done by my student Christopher Lanzisiera in a seminar/studio called Notation A/V taught at the University of Michigan.
