Morteza Farhadian Dehkordi and Shima Roshanzamir, architects and urban researchers, were particularly interested in studying how individuals engage and maneuver to form city space. Dehkordi and Roshanzamir developed simulation programs that abstractly present different scenarios in which individuals might find their own routes and self-organize within a hypothetical city. Their installation in the Mackey Garages depicted the multiple layers of improvisation at play as one navigates the urban field, and how cultivation of this process might change existing city structures, or suggest new ones.
