Disseminating Architecture: Week 3: Aerial View

Oblivion 7N, 2004 - David Maisel

This week we will be looking at the view of the city from above, both near and far.
While preparing your 5 minute presentation on your selected aerial topic/photographer, read Vittoria di Palma's essay 'Zoom: Google Earth and Global Intimacy' from the book she co-edited, 'Intimate Metropolis: Constructing Public and Private in the Modern City'.
Also read 'The Synoptic View': Aerial Photographs and Twentieth-Centry Planning by Tanis Hinchcliffe from the book Camera Constructs: Photography, Architecture and the Modern City, edited by Andrew Higgott and Timothy Wray.
Post your 300 word response to the City:Assembled Panorama on the blog before our next session on Wednesday 11th at 11am (in the workshop room to accommodate numbers).
