Shanghai >> Shenzhen | aerophotography

Shanghai - Shenzhen | December 4, 2015

Earlier this month, MovingCities flew from Shanghai 上海 to Shenzhen 深圳.
In the past we have contextualized our aerophotography adventures by introducting a 24-year old Portuguese priest making real airplanes (from real paper) in 1709 (here) or discussed the relation between aerophotography and the work German apothecary Julius Neubronner [1852-1932] (here). This time around, we an introduce A. F. Mozhaisky [1825-1890] – an admiral in the Imperial Russian Navy, aviation pioneer, researcher and designer of heavier-than-air craft (source).

MovingCities 2012 | an overview

Shanghai | January 1, 2013

2012 was a good year for MovingCities. With 2013 barely started, we composed a non-lineair overview of the past year. The selection is based on content, correspondences and aspects of continuity across various projects, publications and places. While our Portuguese posts on Peter Zumthor and Álvaro Siza Vieira keep on generating traffic, with 2012 Pritzker Prize winner Wang Shu we found a close runner-up. But we’re also pleased that our, incognito, Koolhaas-Simpsons scoop made it to the sixths place on Archinect’s Top 12 News Posts of 2012. MovingCities in 2012 was about cities, architecture and the creative industries in China. A selected flashback.
