Three Layered Map of the World

  1. 1. Proposing A Three-Layered Map of the World An Urban Logic Project Bruce Cahan Presented at Center for Architecture New York City September 12, 2008 9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  2. 2. The Earth is neither flat, nor round 9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  3. 3. Our Planet is Semantic Fabric <ul><li>Needs are real, but mapped retrospectively </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities are locally known, but unmapped </li></ul><ul><li>Money is a social fiction, unmapped, oddly purposely </li></ul>9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  4. 4. A Simple 3-Layer World Map <ul><li>Needs Layer – regional, indigenous, dynamic </li></ul><ul><li>Capacities Layer – regional, thematic, real </li></ul><ul><li>Money Layer – $ flows from here to there </li></ul>9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  5. 5. Needs Layer = Gaps in Quality of Life = Sustainable Resiliency® 9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  6. 6. Capacities Layer <ul><li>A Wikipedia® of Solutions </li></ul><ul><li>indigenous to </li></ul><ul><li>the region or applicable to its Needs </li></ul>9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  7. 7. Money Layer <ul><li>Spatially-tag the money aimed at </li></ul><ul><li>Creating, redressing or anticipating Needs </li></ul><ul><li>or </li></ul><ul><li>Leveraging Capacities </li></ul>9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
  8. 8. Example: Foreign Aid <ul><li>80% of foreign aid is wasted or untraceable </li></ul><ul><li>Too many hands handle aid money </li></ul><ul><li>No map exists of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Authorized foreign aid funds </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Projects that foreign aid was supposed to fund </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What aid money actually funded </li></ul></ul>9/12/08 © 2008 Urban Logic, Inc.
