I stumbled across this superb looking book called “Mapping Istanbul“. It is the work of Project Projects in collaboration with Garanti Galerie and Superpool architects. The aim of the book is to visually capture the complex nature of the city that spans from Europe to Asia.
This book presents an initial effort to map the city of Istanbul, a city steeped in complexity. Working collaboratively with Garanti Galerie and architects Superpool, Project Projects established a uniform visual style for the hundreds of maps and information graphics included. The book’s design presents this information in an accessible, narrative sequence, creating a valuable resource for architects, planners, and policy-makers invested in the city’s future.
I really like the visual style of the created graphics and can’t wait to hold the printed version of it in my hands.
