Mapping Displacement

This thesis explores ‘displacement’ as a methodology to map the movement of people and culture in the urban environment. Observing ‘displacement’ in broad terms as driving factors, whether instigated by urban development or gentrification, climate change or war, this thesis seeks to devise a set of methods to apply contemporary computation techniques, and thus to speculate on its possible application and social and political implication of the outcomes.
