Cities Methodologies is an annual exhibition and programme of events showcasing innovative urban research methodologies, led by the UCL Urban Laboratory. The programme represents the breadth of urban research currently being taken out, not only at UCL, but from the wider local and international community of researchers and practitioners developing new methods to tackle the questions at the heart of our cities.

This year’s exhibition launch takes place from 18:30 on Tuesday 28 October in the Slade Research Centre, and the week ends on Friday 31 October with the inaugural Cities Imaginaries lecure, ‘The New Provinces’ by novelist Amit Chaudhuri.

Bartlett School of Architecture participants include PhD students Sabina Andron, Katy Beinart, Regner Ramos, Fiona Zisch and MA student Povilas Marozas.

This exhibit is a series of 20 images designed for doctoral research on GPS-based apps, particularly Grindr - a gay sociability/cruising app – and how this is changing the use of urban spaces and moulding new identities. These visual impressions represent 20 anonymous Grindr users interviewed on how they use the app, how it has affected their construction of space/place and how they craft/shape their identity on a digital forum.
