[Re_Map]: the image of the urban landscape

Output Type:Other form of assessable output
Brief Description/Editor(s):Co-chaired conference session at the Royal Geographical Society Annual International Conference 2011: The Geographical Imagination
Venue:Royal Geographical Society and Imperial College, London

The imaging and imagined urban landscape, its processing and representation is fundamental to geographies of the city. From Bill Bundy to Kevin Lynch, from Otto Neurath to James Corner, reimagined and processed versions of urbanity are used by geographers, architects, urbanists, statisticians and artists to interpret and afford legibility to the complex edifice that is 'the city'. This session sought to expose the theory, the practice and the methodologies of mapping and representation techniques across a range of disciplines to explore the inherent proximities and tensions in relation to vocabulary, terminology and realisation. The session included presentations from:
Nadia Amoroso, PhD (DataAppeal/University of Toronto);
Ondrej Mulícek & Robert Osman (Department of Geography, Masaryk University, Brno);
Nausica Pezzoni (Department Of Architecture And Planning, Polytechnic Of Milan); and
Gavin MacDonald (Manchester School of Art, Manchester Metropolitan Univerity)
