Imagine a city invisible to the human eye and only manifested by its non-visual urban phenomena. What shape will it take? If these new urban forms are represented as images, do they become new maps of the city? Examining representations of the city not usually visible to the naked eye, The Exposed City takes textual urban data and transforms it into architectural visions. Criminal activities, population densities, transportation patterns, public surveillance, cell phone usage, air quality readings and other spatial statistics all become new maps of the city. The 'unseen elements of the city are exposed in innovative maps throughout the book, which are complimented by interviews with Winy Mass and James Corner, in addition to sections by Richard Saul Wurman, the SENSEAble City Lab group and one of the founders of Google Earth. Showing new ways to map invisible urban information, Amorosos book is ideal for those landscape architecture, urban design and geography students along with professionals interested in the theoretical and practical issues of representing the hidden city through spatial mapping
