I was invited give a presentation to the Finnish Ministry of Environment and his delegation to display the results of my research at Tampere University of Technology on metaMorphology. The talk was designed to show the methodology I developed to study urban trends in Finland and rise awareness on the phase of decay in the diversity of activities available in Helsinki in comparison to other European capital cities.
In my talk I presented the general concept of metaMorphology, some insights from my research at Tampere University of Technology and selected works from the metaMorphology Lab of Tampere, Tallinn and St. Petersburg. Here you can read more if you can read Finnish.
We sat for an interview with ITMO University News on how social media and their users’ social networks have an effect on urban life, and how exploring these factors can enhance planners’ understanding of the city.
A new interview on Deep Baltic where we talk about the way we look at city and how we developed the SPIN Unit model.
“What we try to do here is find the pictures in their spatial context. So we study the pictures in the city, in the urban environment,” says project lead Damiano Cerrone. He added that positioning of people in their environment and their activities can be pinpointed to specific locations. ”Each single picture has a GPS location and we are capable of studying the activities.”
