Groundswell’s collaboration with AREA Chicago and the Design Studio for Social Intervention on Notes for a People’s Atlas of Greater Boston has come to a successful close, and to celebrate, we are making the maps available for download.
In all, fourteen maps were created. Subject matter ranges from family lineages to the student migration of this city with multiple institutions of higher learning. Most are personal, illustrating highly subjective ways of seeing the city, but some include hidden histories, the mysteries of infrastructure, and the intricacies of what makes the city tick without many of us paying any attention.
Keep your eye on AREA Chicago for news about a forthcoming publication on the Notes series. The template for Boston’s atlas is still available for download, and we encourage you to use it.
