Round Edge investigates how urban memory and visual culture intersect. Urban environments have been

re-presented by many different images and visual forms - paintings, drawings, photographs, films, plans, maps, digital visualisations and videos of imagined and real cities. Representing the urban, influences our engagement with built spaces; and how we live together. 

 

How are our collective memory and our visual culture influenced and shaped by the built environment around us?  Moving from a modern city to a contemporary city with rapid changes in politics, economics, society, and this built environment - are we building participatory,

 representative, approachable/open and safe spaces with round edges, and leaving the sharp edges of modernity behind? - or are we de-humanizing the built and planned. Exploring our urban realities and re-articulating the spaces around us, we aim at understanding our human collective.
