Urban Maps: Instruments of Narrative and Interpretation in the City
Authors: Richard Brook and Nick Dunn
Focusing on the city and the “devices” defining the urban environment by their presence, representation or interpretation, the Manchester-based authors use a wider framework of urban theory supplemented by case studies to offer an interdisciplinary discourse and critique of the complex systems, artefacts, interventions and evidences that can inform our understanding of urban territories. Mapping is used as a form of critical instrumentality to expose, record and contribute to the understanding of the singular essences of space, place and networks.
