Reviews

"In this complex, highly illustrated collection of digital maps, lab co-founder Carlo Ratti and architecture historian Antoine Picon analyse four essential urban dimensions."--Andrew Robinson, Nature

"Throughout history, we have used maps to highlight the essential features that determine how our cities work. In this Atlas, Antoine Picon and Carlo Ratti have assembled a beautiful exposition of how the digital world brings the city alive through the power of maps."--Michael Batty, author of Inventing Future Cities

"As our cities become increasingly digital, new technologies and maps increasingly inform our very sense of how we live. Picon and Ratti's Atlas of the Senseable City takes us deep inside this urban reality--a revolution in urban cartography--and what it means for the ways we work, live, and connect in our communities."--Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class

"Atlas of the Senseable City offers a state-of-the art survey of mapping techniques and an intellectual way of understanding the purpose and possibilities of mapping. It is a very important contribution to one of the leading subjects of our time. Any person who works in the field of data and its impact on cities should have this book on their bookshelf."--Gary Hack, author of Site Planning: International Practice
