Global Metropolis

GSAPP’s Studio-X at Columbia University was founded by Dean Mark Wigley in 2008. It was was part of a global network experiment: an off-campus laboratory for the experimentation of urban futures study. For an initiative to create a Studio-X in Moscow, our design approach was to create a system of networks using the text of the brochure. From a center point on the cover, “Global Metropolis”, a myriad of colored lines pointed to every instance of “global” or “metropolis.” The printed collateral also folded out to become a poster, featuring the work of the students in Studio-X satellites around the world.
