Livehoods – Use-Based Urban Analytics

In conceptualizing and exploring the city we rely a range of smaller areas—neighbourhoods, boroughs, wards and districts—in order to make urban space intelligible. While we can readily discuss how neighbourhoods are shaped by physical geography (topography, adjacency to lakes or rivers, etc.), ordinance (zoning, access to public transit) and economics (real estate prices, average resident […]

Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity [WebApp]

Created by Emmanuel Pire, Experimental Study on Web Asynchronicity is a project that uses “web time noise” as a way of composition. The noise you will find is not coded with a random function but is actually the network response time and the browser’s imprecisions that create the asynchronicity. Browsers are smart enough to recognize that it is the […]
