Visualizing the Invisible: Towards an Urban SpaceEdited by Stephen Read and Camilo Pinilla
Visualizing the Invisible takes up the challenge of both producing original insights into the nature of the contemporary urban, and of using these insights as a basis for the design of the contemporary city.
It explores a possible nature of the contemporary urban, drawing on structuralist, post-structuralist and ‘organic’ philosophy (Whitehead, Gregory Bateson, Lefebvre, Foucault, Bergson, Deleuze, Latour, and others). It also looks at the city itself – in its origins as polis, in its spatial evolution, and in the hybridizing properties of network.
The book presents projects in full colour, showing how some of these ideas and concerns about space, time, hybridity and form translate into real work in the Spacelab design studio.
