CodingCity, London, Co-founder, Blogger, Content Manager and Designer

Codingcity is a urban culture and research laboratory which studies the complexity of the urban territory through the analysis of its transformation processes.
We are a group of young designers sharing a common purpose to create a cultural network that links different branches of knowledge, capable to catch the most significant events in which the contemporary city find its expression.
Our lab develops new researches through an interdisciplinary approach and a miscellaneous set of media tools (publications, interviews, proposals, exhibitions and workshops), in order to better understand the city‘s composition and transformation code.
