Reading the morphology of a city helps us to understand its spatial structure and character, which will eventually lead to finding solutions for the city that are more relevant to its context.
Re-Morph theory introduces an approach to study the urban morphology based on the works of French artist “Armelle caron” who considers the city as a piece of art and, at the same time, invites planners to re-examine the concepts of a city and gives them a unique morphological profile.
Within the scope of two workshops followed by further interdisciplinary research, Re-Morph project explored how to deconstruct the map of Tehran. The process included detaching the blocks from their original geo-location and reorganizing them according to other information they bear; such as size, community, population density, average income, number of trees, venues, type of terrain, etc.
The theoretical framework, technical aspects, and the results of the project have been published by Springer, 2019 as “Computer Vision and Audition in Urban Analysis Using the Remorph Framework”.
