Amazing new maps from an L+U favorite, Strange Maps, featuring 'A Taxonomy of City Maps: "Imagined cities built from the fragments of real ones: something similar is happening in Tout bien rangé, a cartography-based artwork by French artist Armelle Caron. It consists of a series of map pairs, one a blind, but recognisably real city map, the other what looks like an assembly kit for that same city, with the its blocks impracticably but neatly arranged by shape and size."
A few selected cities such as New York (top) and Berlin (bottom) - click to enlarge images:
As mentioned, "Caron strips cities of their spatial context. Roads and rivers become irrelevant, districts and parks disappear. The relationship between built-up areas and empty spaces is obliterated." See more on Armelle Caron's website
