Local Code (Paperback)

Nicholas De Monchaux


Praised in the New York Times for its "intelligent enquiry and actionable theorizing," Local Code: Real Estates is a collection of software tools, design proposals, and theoretical arguments about the future of urban infrastructure and architecture. Local Code combines drawings of over five thousand digitally designed and networked microinterventions for vacant lots in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York in the United States, as well as Venice, Italy, with theoretical essays and information graphics. The book's data-driven layout presents a complex, elegant interface to myriad possible future urban landscapes. Local Code presents a digitally driven, networked approach to urban resilience and environmental justice, and argues that we have just begun to discover the full possibilities of computing and design.
