In this Radiolab podcast, two physicists explain a mathematical formula that reveals, with surprising accuracy, key statistics of any given city. Based on the “beat” of a city, they can define its population, average wage, crime rate, number of libraries, etc. But what this equation can’t define is what makes each location unique. It’s the details in the built environment that play a major role in making each city its own. Design sets each city apart, imparting a unique personality that can’t be explained by a mathematical equation. In this way, design is human.
