Urban planner. I travel. I collect case studies. I share. I'm particularly interested in the intersection of the arts and urbanism.

Artist Paolo Cirio, however, believes that all of these images are misappropriated data.
"It’s really interesting for me that Google didn’t ask permission to do what they did, just going around every single city in the world and taking pictures without even alerting the police, or the public administration"
