Vertical: The City from Satellites to Bunkers

Vertical: The City from Satellites to Bunkers

Monday, 27 November 2017

from 2:00pm


Architecture lecturer Stephen Graham rewrites the city at every level. Today we live in a world that can no longer be read as a two-dimensional map, but must now be understood as a series of vertical strata that reach from the satellites that encircle our planet to the tunnels deep within the ground. He asks why Dubai was built to be seen from Google Earth? Why do London billionaires build vast subterranean basements? Vertical will make you look at the world around you anew: this is a revolution in understanding your place in the world.
