dc.description.abstract Simplexity and the City proposes a study of individual elements, their combination as structures, and the networks of physical and virtual structures which define contemporary cities. It is a broad ranging discussion aimed at defining a floating elastic, adaptable, dynamic, urban agglomeration to reflect the rapid changes and accelerations of our time. The challenge lies in defining changes to paths and processes that improve the workings of real cities. Analysis of systems is possible across all spectrums and a variety of scales, from political and geographical, to structural and geological, but the methods by which these interact is not yet well focused. The proposal intends to unify the democratic exchange of data and knowledge to develop an understanding for the managment of complex, global, socially interactive systems. The development of an expression of the sharing economy, and collaborative consumption of the information age. Located in Clew Bay County Mayo, the resulting project is an attempt to bridge the gap between physical and virtual infrastructures, reappropriating new logic on to expired systems. en_US
