Our cities are made up of thousands of individual cells working separately yet together to form a unified body. Circulatory systems move goods, currency, information, and people throughout the city. The combination of these interactive systems starts to mimic the complexity found in biological organisms. Metropolis Familiaris will explore how cities are a shared environment - places of private space and public space. How do our individual lives affect each other? How do buildings talk to each other? Architecture and city systems come to life as cities rise and fall and the people within them change.
