The Central City

The form and content of this work is a visual world of the city and its structure. Networks of information technology are contrasted with organic networks and city networks. The city becomes an organic network of grids and diagrams. I wanted to develop analogies for the organic identity of the city as an urban community and make links with electronic networks and virtual communities. This organic interplay is contrasted with man made structures, as well as patterns and forms of urban design. The form and content of this work is a visual world of the city and its structure. Each aspect of city life seems to demonstrate specific characteristics, which can be developed into individual parts of the labyrinth, making up the images that will be used. The city has moved from metropolis to megalopolis to the ecumenopolis
