观察、解读人们在城市空间中的运动和流转,对设计师、规划师,以及任何关心城市运作的人都极其重要。1961年,简·雅各布斯(Jane Jacobs)在《美国大城市的死与生》(The Death and Life of Great American Cities)中创造了一个著名概念,来表达这种观察行为的相关特征:雅各布斯认为,作为大都市的“天然所有者”,那些生活在其中、工作在其中、以及长期停留其中的人们成为了“街道之眼”(eyes on the street),那些集体的、分布的、散落的目光建立起奇妙的秩序,“维护着街道安全和城市自由”。

半个世纪后,我们正处在城市与数字技术的新篇章中,这要求我们重新审视“街道之眼”的旧概念。在接下来的几年中,随着人工智能、深度学习和图像识别的发展,我们即将看到一个前所未有的场景,迎来物联网最激进的发展阶段:建筑空间正在获得“可视”的全部能力。“想象一下,城市的任何空间、街道或商店都能识别你,并对你的出现自动做出反应。”过去的“街道之眼”是人们观察他人和城市、解释城市机制的“眼睛”,而新时代,这不仅是人,还是建筑物和街道获得的观察并对面前城市生活作出反应的“眼睛”。我们从“街道之眼”进入了“城市之眼”的时代。

——摘自2019深港城市\建筑双城双年展,“城市之眼”策展主题声明

Observing people’s presence in physical space and deciphering their flows have always been critical actions to designers and planners. It was in 1961 that journalist and urban activist Jane Jacobs, in her seminal book “The Death and Life of Great American Cities”, coined a famous expression to encapsulate a specific significance of this observational activity. According to Jacobs, “the natural proprietors” of a certain part of the metropolis – these may be the people who live or work or just spend a substantial amount of time there – become the “eyes on the street.” Their collective and decentralized gaze becomes the prerequisite to establishing “a marvelous order for maintaining the safety of the streets and the freedom of the city.”

Almost half a century later, we find ourselves at the inception of a new chapter in the relationship between the city and digital technologies, which calls for a reexamination of the old idea of the “eyes on the street.” In the next few years, thanks to the most recent advances in Artificial Intelligence, we are about to reach an unprecedented scenario, the most radical development in the evolution of the Internet-of-Things: architectural space is acquiring the full ability to “see.” Imagine that any room, street or shop in our city can sense you, and autonomously respond to your presence. With the “eyes on the street,” it was people who looked at other people or the city and interpreted its mechanisms. In this new scenario, it will not be just people but also buildings and streets themselves that acquire the ability to observe and react as urban life unfolds in front.

From 2019 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (Shenzhen), “Eyes of the City” curatorial statement

 

人类文明的信息复杂程度呈指数增长,但人脑的演化速度并非如此。直观具象的图形仍是人脑接收效率最高的信息形式,它不需要大量调用人脑中逻辑认知与理性分析的功能。而增强现实技术将虚拟图形信息置入与之相关的实景,正是迎合了人脑的运作特性,代替人脑完成信息的空间重组,从而进入一个信息高效传达的渠道。

我们希望将复杂的专业信息以动态图形的方式融入空间,使人们在现实城市环境中看到形象化的逻辑结构与专业学科成果,看到被遮挡的空间,看到历史与未来的城市风貌等。从而提升人们对城市发展脉络、城市主要运行逻辑与城市空间特征等等方面的认知深度。

The information complexity of human civilization has increased exponentially, but the human brain has not. Visual and concrete graphics are still the most efficient form of information received by human brain, which does not need to invoke the functions of logical cognition and rational analysis in human brain. The augmented reality technology puts the virtual graphic information into the relevant real scene, which just caters to the operating characteristics of the human brain and replaces the human brain to complete the spatial reorganization of the information, thereby entering an efficient information transmission channel.

We want to integrate complex professional information into space in form of dynamic graphics,It allows people to see the visualized logical structure and professional discipline achievements, see the covered space, and see the historical and future urban features in the real urban environment. Therefore, people’s understanding about the development, the operation logic and the spatial characteristics of the city are improved.

通过增强现实技术,人们具备了一只透彻观察城市的眼睛,当无人机将这只眼睛带上高空并自由穿梭,人才得以超越自己肉体的渺小,获得自己可以掌控的、宏观的视角。这是一只由城市文明提供给人们用以观察城市的眼睛,城市文明也为这种观察提供丰富的数据信息与解读范式。由此,我们认为这只眼睛方可称为“城市之眼”。当人拥有了这只眼睛,在某种意义上可谓化身为神,既在认知上达到宛如全观全知的通透境界,更能够将自己关于城市的创想与设计形成虚拟形象,通过 “城市之眼”直观通透的传达给他人。于是,人与人之间的交流沟通将会达到空前的效能。

Through AR technology, people have an “eye” for a thorough observation of the city. When the UAV takes this “eye” high into the sky and flies freely, people can transcend their physical smallness and gain a macro perspective that they can control. This is an eye provided by urban civilization for people to observe the city, and urban civilization also provides rich data information and interpreting paradigms for such observation. Therefore, we think that this eye can be called “the eye of the city”. When people have this eye, they can be regarded as god in a sense. Not only can they achieve a transparent state of being fully aware, but they can also form a virtual image of their ideas and designs about the city, and then convey them to others intuitively and transparently through the “eye of the city”. In this way, Communication between people will be more effective than ever.

本作品是2019深港城市\建筑双城双年展(UABB)“城市之眼”板块参展作品。我们选择重庆市化龙桥片区作为我们的实验场地,采用摄影测量技术重建了这一区域内的城市模型,邀请了不同领域的城市学科专家提供专业资料与分析,将无人机航拍画面、摄影测量重建的三维场景与编程动态图形融合在一起,生成增强现实的动画,将这一区域特殊的地形地貌与重庆不同历史时期的城市状态相结合,形成一系列动态的、跨越千年时间的、深入的数字化解析与展望。

This work is exhibited in the “Eye of the City” section of the 2019 “Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture”. In this work, we choose Chongqing Hualongqiao area as our experiment site. After using photogrammetry technology to reconstruct the model of this region, and inviting experts from different areas to provide professional information, we have fused UAV aerial pictures and photogrammetry reconstruction 3d scenes with programming dynamic graphics to generate animation of AR, which combines the special topography with the city status of Chongqing in different historical periods to form a series of dynamic, millennial and in-depth digital analysis.
