Article
Full-text available
In this paper, we aim to demonstrate that choreographic practice has the potential to offer new insights into the engineering of sustainable urban infrastructure and environments. Identifying urban mobility as an ideal starting point to discuss the potential overlaps between engineering and choreographic thinking, we briefly outline the notion of s...

What does it mean for a museum to be urban? How do you exhibit what a city is? The Museum of London is making plans to leave its purpose-built modernist structure at London Wall and renovate part of the old Smithfield Market as a new facility. As it does so, it has the opportunity to transform its relationship to the city spatially, socially, and c...
Conference Paper
Accounts of communication technology use in neighbourhood life tend to foreground either media or space and treat the other as a backdrop. As a result, there is much research on the way neighbourhoods become the content of media and how media could be instrumentalised to improve local communities, but there is a lack of synthesis of media and built...

If cultural display is what happens onstage, what is the urban backstage, where production, experimentation, and rehearsal take place? Our investigative approach aims to document the ‘urban backstage’—the often-invisible spaces in which culture is produced before it meets the public eye. The journal reflects a work-in-progress, our ongoing reflect...
Research
On the edge, at the periphery. The two cities featured in this publication embody the limits, inherent prejudices, and clichés of these hackneyed metaphors. Marseille and Glasgow: rich, complex and prejudged. This Edition documents a research exchange organised with support from the British Embassy in France. Exploring different models of infrastr...
Article
Full-text available
What is the place of both immediate and mediated information in forming publics and sustaining communities? And what can past communication practices teach us in our digitally hyperconnected age? With reference to the work of philosophers, sociologists and theorists including Hannah Arendt, Jurgen Habermas, Keith Hampton and Barry Wellman, cultural...

Book
Full-text available
The collection examines the continual evolution of public art, moving beyond monuments and memorials to examine more fully the development of socially-engaged public art practice. Topics include constructing new models for developing and commissioning temporary and performance-based public artworks; understanding the challenges of a socially-engage...
Article
Full-text available
This paper asks whether geographically localised, or ‘hyperlocal’, uses of Twitter succeed in creating peer-to-peer neighbourhood networks or simply act as broadcast media at a reduced scale. Literature drawn from the smart cities discourse and from a UK research project into hyperlocal media, respectively, take on these two opposing interpretation...
Article
A decade ago, Ken Livingstone, then Mayor of London, put forward an unusual proposition: a dedicated strategy to incorporate urban sound in City Hall's planning decisions. The report, Sounder City, had a remit to address sound in London, ranging from aircraft noise to raucous neighbours to idiosyncratic neighbourhood "soundmarks". It was the first...
Article
In understanding the impact of the future or smart city on daily experiences of urban inhabitation, many of the inherited terms are unhelpful and send us into dichotomies between the imagined digital and the real, or suggest fantastical ways in which the two merge.

This study investigates the interplay between space and exhibition by focusing on one floor of the permanent collection displays at Tate Modern. A considerable amount of literature was already in existence about this museum of modern art, including self-published descriptions of the spatial properties of the galleries and the intended effects of ex...
