#Guide to the Situationist City

In conjunction with the paper I previously posted, we had to develop a poster illustrating our topic. For some, it was details about a particular development style (transit-oriented development, garden cities, etc.) and precedents and guidelines for those styles. For my topic, it was a little different.

I elected to produce a map/timeline of sorts, directly inspired by Guy Debord’s psychogeographic map of Paris and Constant Nieuwenhuis’ early model of New Babylon. I wanted to show the progression of ideas among the group, how each of those ideas eventually manifested itself, and how they interconnected. I also included imagery related to each topic.
