Layered Cities

Rendering of Layered Cities Installation, 2017

Anne Hanrahan

Anne Hanrahan - Toronto, Canada

What happens when we are given the opportunity to question how different urban environments can change our realities? This installation investigates city transformation in Canada, and countries that Canadians have originated from, by layering images of both settings to suggest new forms of urban experiences. Based on diverse cultural design practices that citizens bring to their city, the projections stand in an open maze-like structure where the images change with the audience's movement through the space. The user will self-create a unique visual experience producing an immersive involvement with the content. 

The projections use Anne's own city research through photography to show varied global cultures and landscapes, suggesting new possible urban layers for future built form in Canadian cities.

Anne Hanrahan, M.Arch, is a designer and urbanist based in Toronto. This project is in collaboratation with Wright XM, and Stacklab.
