I love walking Manhattan's grid system, but now that I've seen Armelle Caron's bottom-up version of Istanbul, all those crooked, lopsided, curvaceous streets, going off in so many directions, I can't help wondering, what would it be like to wander there? Would I be constantly lost? Would every turn be an adventure? Suddenly I can't help it. I want to go.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html> http://archinect.com/news/article/22064227/ahead-of-its-time-an-icon-goes-digital Ahead of Its Time | An Icon Goes Digital Alexander Walter 2011-09-28T20:14:26-04:00 >2011-11-24T09:05:52-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/84/84f80fe6ff74f428e7504c628b73f1f1.jpg" width="514" height="337" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>In 1972, Massimo Vignelli designed a diagrammatic map for the New York City subway. It was a radical departure. He replaced the serpentine maze of geographically accurate train routes with simple, bold bands of color that turned at 45- and 90-degree angles. [...] Its abstract representation of the routes was elegant but flawed. To make the map function effectively, a few geographic liberties were taken, something that didn&rsquo;t sit well with New Yorkers.</p></em><br /><br /><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd"> <html><head><meta></head></html>
