Lu Xinjian: City DNA 

First of two posts looking at the work of artist Lu Xinjan from Shanghai.

Lu creates works based on abstract arrangements of symbols aesthetically, which are actually based on information and reality. In the City DNA series, maps of famous cities from around the world are codified with Lu’s unique design grammar.

You can check out all of Lu’s current collection of the ongoing series here

Next post on the artist’s work: Invisible Poems

“French artist Armelle Caron takes maps of cities and reorganizes the individual blocks into ordered rows. The process transforms a chaotic city into a unrecognizable, but systematic assemblage of shapes. I’ll be honest, the sizes of the images below don’t do the designs justice.”

Hans Hollein, Aircraft Carrier Projects, 1964
All of Hollein’s drawings in this book are from his Transformations  series, created between 1963 and 1968. In each, an agricultural or urban  landscape, often apparently barren, becomes the site for a monumental  object. The drawings are visual parodies of Le Corbusier’s concept of  architecture as an object in the landscape, an idea exemplified in his  seminal book Vers une Architecture (Toward a new architecture), with its  images of ocean liners, automobiles, and airplanes-examples of  technological ingenuity that stand as singular objects, more worthy of  an absolute and dominant place in the world than any other current  example of monumental architecture.
