local codes:real estates - Nicholas De Monchaux

A few recent articles in the press on the prospects and uses of GIS in built environment design have got me all hot and bothered these last few months.  A recent piece in Architect has a nice analysis of possible and contemporary uses of GIS.  A few months back the NYT featured a profile on recent work in the field  I had really thought that Nicholas De Monchaux's Local Codes:Real Estates should have been the winner in the WPA 2.0 competition last year.  Though in many ways it has, as the project has generated a lot more interest and buzz than the pinball paddle algae bridge that was the official winner.
