Metacity Datatown (Rotterdam, 1999)

“Can we understand the contemporary city at the moment when globalization has exploded its scale beyond our grasp? Have we lost control of its quantities or can we analyse its components and manipulate them? Imagine a city that is described only by data. […] A city that knows no given topography, no prescribed ideology, no representation, no context. […]”

Esta publicación trata principalmente con datos y números y, a través de estadísticas, aborda la especulación como herramienta creativa para la creación espacial. De esta forma, los números ofrecen escenarios posibles para la arquitectura y las ciudades. Metacity Datatown es una lectura contextual a través de datos. Es un “programa” que lee un contexto, acomoda la información y especula con ella.
