“......mind set out on its own, and after dismantling the city piece by piece, he reconstructed it in other ways, substituting components, shifting them, inverting them........From now on I shall describe the cities and you will tell me if they exist and are as I have conceived them..... ”
– Italo Calvino, 1972
To explore techniques or methods of analyzing and investigating contemporary urban forms, the illustrations are capable of revealing not only the tangible but also shedding light on the intangibles, rendering the invisible visible.
These drawings are augmented and altered realities; they straddle between real and fiction.
They are allegorical and abstract on one hand, yet act as a practical re-investigation of the contemporary urban paradigm on the other.
