Chapter

Abstract

The chapter is about a form of networked urbanism distributed in east London, consisting of a system of infrastructural and leisure clusters of cellular units, combining as a connective tissue of bridges and islands, adapting, and negotiating as both a physical and an informational network. Embedded with self-learning behavioral and responsive systems, it allows for an intelligent choreography of soft programmatic spaces to create new leisure experiences, negotiating the changing effects of time, weather, programmatic, and crowd-dynamical inputs, extending parametric processes to drive urban performance.
