During a chance aerial photo, I found that the structure of the city building was similar to the computer host accessories. Since then, I have found more similar urban structures, including transportation hubs, warehouses, parks, office buildings, etc. I detached these buildings from their environment in order to look more specifically at their structure and function. A computer requires a variety of hardware and software to function properly, and the same is true for cities. This project explores the issues of functionality, complexity and sustainability in urban development by analogy.
