A free poster exploring urban infrastructures and how cities are made
Cities depend on circulations: of people, materials, goods, energy, and information. It is urban infrastructures that make those circulations possible.
Such infrastructures include networks of transportation, communication, supply and, increasingly, digital data that allows people and objects to be mobile.
They include, less obviously, the technical standards, bureaucratic systems, and regulatory governance that allows such networks to function.
The images and words on this poster offer some ways of thinking about the different forms this shaping can take with the intention of drawing your attention to how, when, where and why cities are never finished and always in the making.
