The City Within by Tom Marshall

In the age of internet shopping, mobile phones and suburban placelessness, what does the role of the city become?

The City Within challenges conventional planning methodology and land use in a collage of non-material public amenity. Purposeful public space is layered over residential and commercial enterprise within a complex existing landscape of vacant twentieth-century infrastructure. Steep terrain provides opportunities for vertical public space and for a more complex grid of pathways to be embedded into the city. The exchange of non-material abstract goods is complemented by complex urban morphology to engage with the spatial intelligence of the urban citizen.
