In Metrography [looksgood.de], interaction design student Benedikt Groß presents us with an alternative view on London. What if the street map was reshaped according to the positions of the tube stations as placed on the Tube map?
The result is a ‘warped’ or ‘morphed’ map of London, that highlights the discrepancy between the stylized metro map and the geographically correct depiction. The resulting high-resolution prints can be viewed online in all detail.
By the way: Groß explored the relation of mental maps and geographic mapping already in a predecessor project titled Vauxhall.
