Blinking City

BlinkingCity is a project investigating the inadequacy of traditional maps for cityenvironments characterized by fast pace transformation and urban growth. Assoon as the map is done, the city it describes has already gone. We transferredone of the Blinking City pattern, based on a collage of several Hutongneighbourhoods of Beijing, onto a wall of a dilapidated courtyard house inXianyukou district, located in the core of the city.

I really enjoy the vibrancy of this design, the way it’s designed and fitted into a circle makes it actually look like a map too, I feel if it was within another shape such as a rectangle it wouldn’t have the map feel, the circle gives it a sort of globe feel.
