Cities are places of opportunity, sources of innovation and surprise. Within the SPIN Unit we explore the underlying spatial architecture and social foundations of these key urban qualities. This study is needed to help make cities even better and improve the effectiveness of new development plans. Through the use of our unique methods and digital tools, we can help create new opportunities, foster new quality practices, and envision new tangible spaces and innovative improvements of existing ones.
In order to tackle the complexity and dynamism of social and architectural urban features, we gathered a number of experienced experimenters and thinkers. By combining art and science, SPIN Unit has coalesced into an international network of academics and professionals. Born as an academic endeavour, it has built on the varied expertise of its members to find new and creative approaches to urban analytics and redefining the practice of urban design.
