George Zisiadis imagines a city where parking meters dispense gumballs and traffic lights are disco balls.

‘Urban Imagination‘ is an ongoing series of sketches by San Francisco-based interactive artist George Zisiadis that reinvents everyday urban constructs, such as transportation and architecture, with a playful twist. The Harvard educated designer was also behind Boston's ‘Pulse of the City‘ installation, which turned pedestrians' heartbeats into unique melodies.

The series, currently consisting of sixteen drawings, bears the quality of childlike imagination.

“I found that these sketches are the ideal way to quickly inspire a new way of seeing the world,” Zisiadis tells PSFK. “Urban Imagination helps people look past the urban status quo and see cities as a canvas for fun.”
