Specifications
The original City Plate was a commemorative platter in honor of the 2006 AIA Convention, which was hosted by Los Angeles. The notNeutral parent firm, the Rios Clementi Hale Studios, had been working on a series of diagrams for their Civic Park project in downtown Los Angeles, looking at elements such as open space, circulation, and land use in the downtown core relative to the urban context of greater Los Angeles. A draft of the plan was up on one the common walls in the studio that notNeutral and the Rios Clementi Hale Studios share, and, typical of the cross-disciplinary interplay, notNeutral had the inspiration to translate the diagram onto a ceramic plate. The reductive graphics of the diagram and the recognizable pattern of LA streets and landmarks translated well to the medium. The response to the plate at the Convention was very enthusiastic ('Do my city!'), and the notNeutral expanded the idea into a series of plates. The result was a line of City Plates, released in series of four, which look at cities as a graphic language of line, color, and pattern as a means to investigate the cultural, economic, historical, and political impacts on city form. Each series has a particular conceptual framework that relates the four cities to each other, and the series as a whole operates within an ecological matrix organized by patterns of urban development: organic, baroque, gridded, and eclectic. The idea was that as the series evolved, the City Plates would form a network of relationships to each other that would allow people to design their own combination of plates (American cities, Coastal cities, Colonial cities, for example) that would allow interesting comparisons. This methodology led the notNeutral to some of the great cities of the world, and also to some less well-known cities that warrant attention. Each plate celebrates the beauty implicit in a city's unique form, a distinct pattern that has evolved over time as layers of history are inscribed into the urban landscape. With an estimated population of 13.5 million, Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is the most populated city in the world. It is one of those cities constantly being listed as one of the 'fastest/biggest/densest' -- a city of the new world order. It is the product of major feats of civil engineering that merged an archipelago of islands into an amalgamated mass of activity. Might the notNeutral suggest a 2020 World's Fair in Mumbai that showcases 21st century imagination and creates monuments that speak to the notNeutral hope for the future? One of the most arresting designs in the collection, this city plate features a dramatic blue swath of The Arabian Sea. Noted landmarks include the tony Malabar Point (in red) and the Gateway of India and Taj Majal Hotel (also in red) along the Mumbai Harbor (in blue.)
