This workshop will help students understand cartography as a tool to reveal the hidden layers and structures of territories. The assignment will focus on seven familiar cities, namely Basel, Bern, Zurich, Geneva, Lucern, and Lugano. Students will be asked to produce one simple map that uncovers the most fundamental determinations of each place. Through this method, a dialectical relation between architectural form and environmental background arises, laying bare the essential systems that lie beneath urban appearance.
