I’ve just spent the morning with the delightfully erudite Leo Hollis discussing the origin of great cities, great cities of the future (hint: it’s not Masdar, Mr. Foster…) and the role that transparency will play in their formation. Naturally this got me thinking about my love of mobility of all sorts and my love of infographics. Long story short, indulge me and take a look at Chromaroma.
Although it’s a game that you can play – the object being to use the London transport system in the most efficient way possible – it was the visualisation of transport set to Starkey’s Star (featuring Anneka) that really pulled me in. I know, I know, it’s hardly new stuff but I was struck nonetheless; David McCandless was right to call his book Information is Beautiful. The best bit is that we can all be part of this beautiful happening. Sign up here.
