about

In a positive departure from modernism, the work of the art critic and urbanist Ludwig Hilberseimer offers schemata towards the design for the city itself: its mereological composition. The resonance of parts unfolds to an alternative of a purely contrasting equation of form and content. It reminds us, that when the ground (logos) of the city is defined by its parts (meros), its architecture, the city in turn always also is part of the architecture as its desire. The Mereological City introduces a mereological methodology and contributes to an ongoing discussion about an ecological form of urban design.

Daniel Köhler teaches urban design at the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and digital design strategies at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, Lithuania. His research incorporates digital methods into the study of the city, its history, and architecture.
