Local Code: 3,659 Proposals About Data, Design, & The Nature of Cities presents a collection of data-driven tools and design prototypes for understanding and transforming the physical, social, and ecological resilience of cities. Written by Nicholas de Monchaux, associate professor of architecture and urban design at UC Berkeley, the book arranges drawings of 3,659 digitally tailored interventions for vacant land in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, and Venice, Italy. The book combines many thousands of drawings, images, and critical and historical texts into a complex and timely manifesto for 21st-century infrastructure and urbanism.
