Artist Statement:

    Travelers and dwellers often use landmarks to navigate within an environment. In the planometric mapping of landmark prominence, emergent patterns and networks articulate not only existing situations, but also future connections.

    This study seeks to expose the virtual network connections of visual landmark buildings within Center City Philadelphia through a process of NURBS Surface “pulling” and “contouring”, extracting the resultant information to display emergent patterns of tall building development and unlocking potentials in the locations of new tall buildings in such a way as to form a more cohesive network.
