global_cities.jpg
an infographically-inspired exhibition at the Tate Modern addressing the major issues facing today’s cities, such as size, speed, form, density & diversity. the exhibition draws on data originally assembled for the 10th International Architecture Exhibition at the 2006 Venice Biennale. the show presents films, videos & photographs by more than 20 artists and architects to offer subjective & intimate interpretations of urban conditions in all 10 cities.

wooden models created from data compiled by the LSE represent the population density in London, Mexico City, Mumbai & Cairo. clear information graphics are complemented by bold typographic statements. the restrained graphic language communicates key facts that add context to the artwork on display.

I really enjoyed some of the videos on the tate site which examine these cities on a variety of levels.

There is a really incredible book, it is one of the Center for Environmental Structure Series, called "A Pattern Language" that has a lot of great information and ideas about the relationship of people and their environments. I highly recommend it.

Anyway, it reminded me of this, which I'm excited to see.
