City Shapes - Stadtviertel von oben

Supply routes; mobility on different levels (waterway, railroad, streets, sidewalks, airway); allocation of productions sites, capital, public and private space... all this result in diverse geometrical forms on diverse scales. Whether they did grow organically around each other or they underly a strict planning, whether they are centered around more rational ideas like efficiency and order or around aesthetic ideas, the lines in-between can be thin. This photo series depicts the geometrical shapes of cities in central Germany.
