Glasgow landscape was developed as part of Terra Incognita
This map of Glasgow city centre uses the language of traditional landscape contour maps, where altitudes are colour coded and the changes of heights is illustrated from blue for sea level to white for snowy tops.
For Glasgow landscape we mapped the city centre including the buildings as part of the relief, as they do ultimately constitute the volume of the city.
By altering the common visual language used to describe cities, the reading of the city map becomes alien, the hierarchy of main streets and commercial activities is lost in favour of topography and volumes, introducing new territories and new orientations.
