Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises

MAS Context and the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago present the exhibition Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises.

The exhibition will be on display from September 17 until October 30, 2019, at the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago (31 W Ohio St, Chicago, IL 60654, USA).

About the exhibition

The exhibition Nocturnal Landscapes: Urban Flows of Global Metropolises, organized by MAS Context and the Instituto Cervantes of Chicago, explores new political, economic, environmental, and social challenges that affect global cities at night. Currently, in the context of urban growth, there is a need to observe and analyze cities at night from an interdisciplinary perspective.

This exhibit presents a research methodology focused on the comparison of relevant case studies based on cartographic depictions of the rhythms and recognizable sites of seven global cities using Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) data and tools. The exhibition also includes a collection of photographs of cities around the world providing a snapshot of their activities at night. Chicago, Barcelona, and Vancouver will be the focus of a more detailed exploration.

The exhibition is curated and designed by architect Iker Gil (MAS Studio, Chicago) and features work by architects Mar Santamaria and Pablo Martinez (300.000 Km/s, Barcelona) and sociologist/photographer David Schalliol (David Schalliol, Minneapolis).

This exhibition is a partner program of the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Nocturnal Landscapes is partially supported by Simon with printing support by HP.
