Maps of New York City include subway tunnels and terminals scaled by frequency of use, ferry routes and terminals scaled by frequency of use, transportation terminals and egress, subterranean public transportation systems, and twitter data mapped using open source APIs from December 2015. Drawings were combined into an exploded axonometric drawing constructed with acetate prints and plexiglass.

CITY RITUAL is an atlas of the generic city as manifested in the Pearl River Delta, built from pieces of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou. CITY RITUAL distills the 21st century the Pearl River Delta into spaces of commerce, housing, transportation, and communion, mapped as a modular and infinite collage of confusion and erasure.

MULTIPLICITY is an atlas of migrant worker housing surrounding FoxConn’s Longhua Campus, a prototypical urban condition in which the assembly line is multiplied across 450,000 bodies through processes of manufacturing, assembling, eating, sleeping, and exportation. Interpolating data from GIS, Google/Apple/Baidu maps, site visits, interviews, and online media/journalism, the atlas maps and illustrates the spatial typologies from which Shenzhen is composed: old villages including religious buildings and Feng Shui woods, “new” villages from the Shenzhen’s opening in the 1990s, and mega-industrial parks from the subsequent international export market. MULTIPLICITY is finally an architectural projection, imagining a future in which community grows upwards through parasitic structures, outcompeting the hyper-modernity of the globalized factory to create an adaptive social and physical interface for Chinese migrant workers.
