Who "owns" the city?

With What the Street!? - The Mobility Space Report, we set out to explore urban mobility space and to answer our questions systematically, interactively, and above all, in a fun way. Inspired by recently developed techniques in data visualization of unrolling, packing, and ordering irregular shapes, we packed and rolled all mobility spaces into rectangular bins to visualize the areas they take up.

How do you visualize the total area taken by parking spaces?
→ You pack them tightly.

How do you visualize the total area taken by streets and tracks?
→ You roll them up tightly.
