Visualising city complexity Visualising city complexity Presentation Transcript

  • visualising the complexity of cities
  • . this is what my research is about
  • . complexity environment complex adaptive systems. Order arising out of a complex dynamical system. (C. Langton) Complex adaptive systems are pattern seekers. They interact with the environment, “learn” from experience and adapt as a result (Murray Gell-Mann) emergent global structure local interactions time
  • ea . the macroscope The Macroscope Joël de Rosnay
  • Maps of processes, actors, relations. (visualise complexity to understand it) densitydesign.org
  • cities are complex, selforganising systems (K. Lynch)
