The future is in our cities

Online storytelling with 192021 dot org

In the book Massive Change, Bruce Mau and Jennifer Leonard focus on Urban sprawl and a so called tipping point. The year 2006 was the tipping point in how we live. From 2006 on half of the world population will live in cities. Cities grow together creating so called urban cores. This is a very interesting movement and will have effect on how we live and work.

The website 192021.org – a platform for research into the subject – tries to explain this phenomena by using a simple and beautiful animation. The makers have divided the information into small fragments. The story is still linear and doesn’t have a lot of interaction, but how they have cut up the information for digital storytelling is very good.

I love this subject. If you know media that explore this, please recommend me websites, movies, books or any other media.
