Cartographic Grounds

Jill Desimini (my grad school classmate at PennDesign) curated a fascinating exhibit about  contemporary practices of cartographic representations used the creative process at the GSD. Cartographic Grounds displayed 41 maps in the fall of 2012 that are now shared as a slideshow on Places: Design Observer.

Cartographic Grounds: Projecting the Landscape Imaginary: Places: Design Observer

“The drawing of a parallel between cartography and architecture is instructive. Each lies in the field of the practical arts; each is older than history; and each, since its beginnings, has been more or less under the control of its consumers.”
— Arthur H. Robinson, The Look of Maps, 1952
