Where You’d Rather Be
A design research project exploring resilient city theory and its application to creating new urban centres.
Mapping, design research and design interventions were applied to the complex situation of the city. Three lenses of Sound, Green Space and Sleep, were chosen as a way into exploring the complex system of a city, revealing dichotomies of public and private, and order and chaos—the balances that keep a city running.
The map records research and expansion, while the cards create a scaffold for interactive research, with participants answering questions and following instructions to create a wealth of personal and subjective data.
The resulting information was interogated through visual and data driven interventions, exploring common threads, motifs and outliers, exploring how memory effects our understandings of place.
