Life in cities relies on the provision of a host of public and private utility services, most of which are delivered through underground networks that we normally never have a chance to see. From water mains and wastewater sewers, through electricity distribution, heating and cooling, telephone and network communications and transit, there is an invisible architecture buried beneath city streets.
These photographs are a window into crucial infrastructure whose doors we are likely never to open, and to the human-scale spaces attached to services that we only ever think of in the abstract. Viewing the photographs, we all have a chance to imagine and think about the systems that make the city work.
