Thanks for all the contributions! After a data collection phase, we are keen to refine and organize the photos that have been submitted and try to encourage more contributions!

As a reminder, here are the simple steps to post on cutnpastecities:
- Upload a photo of something you found in a city
- Define whether that is a CUT (something undesirable) or a PASTE (something desirable)
- A little comment on your photo (i.e where and when you took it, what you liked or disliked) would be great!

Group Description

Cut and Paste Cities is an Arup project exploring the best and worst bits of cities. We are keen on documenting through photographs taken by many which aspects of the city work and which do not....

Whether is it an ironic juxtaposition, a funky sign, or a bikeshare stand, show us what you like or dislike about the cities you know...

Group Rules

Hello everyone,

Cutnpastecities is an Arup-led project which is looking to crowdsource images of elements of cities that people like (PASTE) or dislike (CUT)... Imagine you could build your own city, what elements from Zurich, San Francisco, Johannesburg and Dubai would you want it to have? What cities are doing really innovative stuff? Which ones are lagging? These are all questions we are keen to answer through your contribution...

To make this possible, we are going to need a teeny weeny bit of structure in the photostream (I know, I said the S word...)

Here are some quick group rules for cutnpastecities to keep the group happy and functioning

1. The photo must be one that you have taken, and one that we can use with your permission (i.e. the photo remains your intellectual property; cutnpaste cities will credit you as you wish)
2. Any size and resolution is accepted.
3. Only post photos that are relevant to the overall aim of the project
4. Tag photos
5. Indicate whether it is a CUT (dislike) or a PASTE (like)
6. Indicate which city the photo was taken in
7. Quickly describe which element of the photo you are looking at, this can be done when you give a title to the photo...

Just a liiiittttlllleee bit of work to get some cool results...
