Project: Austin’s Atlas
Role: Founder/creator/archive maintainer
Partner: Citizens of Austin
Approach: Hand-drawn maps and illustrated pedestrian guides
Austin’s Atlas is a participatory project that observes, documents, and expands upon the city’s sense of place. It does this through site-specific workshops, guided walking tours, mappy hours, mappenings where maps are instigated and collected, and other formats. The project contains a growing collection of over 300 hand-drawn maps of Austin that create an idiosyncratic and complex portrait of the city.
