Check out the art work by Lee Jang Sub, who imagines the city as an organic being — his work is featured on this year’s volume of the Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies, due out soon.

The organic metaphor for the city was behind many of the nineteenth-century plans for urban restructuring–such as those by Haussmann in Paris and Ildefons Cerdà in Barcelona.
