We’re happy to announce that our project “The Limited Accessibility of Public Transportation” has been chosen for display at this year’s Istanbul Design Biennial. More specifically, Stamen Design, who are well known for their amazing basemaps which we’ve already used on several occasions, submitted a “Mapmaker Manifesto” to the Biennial and collected a variety of maps for what you could call a curation in a curation. We handed in our project to Stamen’s open call and now are flattered to see our maps as part of the exhibition and in a row with many great mapping projects.
There’s a big installation, filling an entire room with maps that you can take a look at if you happen to be in Istanbul till December 14th. If that doesn’t fit with your travel plans, we can highly recommend to at least pay the Mapmaker Manifesto website a visit. There you’ll find a more detailed description what it’s all about and you can explore all the projects that are part of the exhibition online.
