The Visionary Cities Project (VC Project) is a research-based platform devoted to the study of the contemporary city and to speculations on new forms of architectural urbanism. Projects range in scale from the book to the city and take shape as research collaborations, design studios, workshops, and exhibitions. The VC Project is led by Alexander Eisenschmidt. Current and previous team members include Paul Mosley, Matthew Busscher, Daisey Martinez, Pedro Medrano, Ashley Rogow, Janina Sanchez, and Anton Tonchev.
