summary The focus in our elective course for Master Students of Architecture is the following: in parallel to a more traditional way of analysing urban structures, how can the application of multimedia technology, networking and the integration of interactive computer applications lead to a different approach? The objective of our teaching and research project is to find out in what ways urban structure and specific features of a city can be represented by interactive interfaces and the use of CNC technology. Our attitude is based on small-scale approach: the sum of these microanalyses gives us the broader picture, the system or mechanisms of the city. We do not dive into the city but emerge from it. This reflection leads to a new understanding in the organisation of complex urban structures, highlighting and revealing different connections and relationships, thus giving a different final image.
