The installation 210 Cities in San Diego opened at Lightroom Gallery at Carleton University Azrieli School of Architecture & Urbanism on November 4, 2019. The show features a grid of 210 vacuum-formed polystyrene panels printed using a UV digital printing process to visualize an investigation of employment statistics that include over 430,000 unique commuters. Meisterlin states, “Each panel describes the singular and the whole, drawing out the many edges within any city and redefining access as a function of relationships between multiple locations and vectors. Together, they map San Diego as a pluralistic space of daily life, characterized by simultaneity rather than similarity.”

Projects Assistants for the installation included Alanna Browdy ‘20 MSUP, Jacey Chon '20 MSUP, Rebecca Cook '20 MSUP, Eri Furusawa '18 MSUP, Jean Kim '21 MSUP '22 MArch, Fatima Koli '20 MS Data Science, and Gloria Serra Coch '20 MSUP. Additional project support was provided by the GSAPP Making Studio.
