Metis: Urban Cartographies is simultaneously an architectural storybook and guide, leading the reader through a landscape of recoded urban elements, ‘fields’, conditions and texts.
This journey documents a series of innovative architectural procedures, dealing with representation, chance, narrative and the ‘urban imaginary’. Urban Cartographies features proposals for the cities of Ottawa, Canada and Venice, Italy, amongst others. The book is published in conjunction with an international touring exhibition of recent work by Dorrian and Hawker.
