Initial Thesis Abstract: City From Above The Clouds

By the end of 18th century, the body was liberated from gravity by the emergence of the balloon flights. With the movement of the observing body from the ground to the clouds, came a change in the perception of the city. The growing scale, population and density of the cities that began in the 18th century had already aroused a new interest in observing and experiencing the cityscape from different angles. The opportunity to personally experience the cities from above the clouds, the physical movement of the body in the sky in different altitudes with the presence of the clouds created a new perception of the city as landscape, where the individual’s point of view was now the journey of transition.
