What you see is not a wall art made of colourful threads, is much more.

World Metro Map is a genial graphic design project I discovered on Kickstarter: bids are going to end today!

The idea was inspired by a 1959 map created by the Architect Constant Nieuwenhuys. He called his idea ‘New Babylon.’ an imaginary borderless system the size of the entire planet were people can travel without restrictions. “Everything should remain possible, everything should be able to happen. The environment is created by the activities of life not the other way around. “

The design is an idea of ArtCodeData, a collective based in NY interested in the intersection between Art, Visualization and information.

World Metro map features 214 metro/subway systems. Total: 791 lines and 11,924 stations . Every line represents real lines and metro stations of the world that are interconnected, so you can virtually travel from New York to Tokyo with your subway.

Would be nice if it was true!

Sembra un quadro fatto di fili colorati….ma è molto di più.

World Metro Map è un progetto grafico a mio avviso geniale che ho scoperto su Kickstarter poco tempo fa, di quelli che ti colpiscono al primo sguardo nella marea di progetti pubblicati ogni giorno, e che termina proprio oggi.

L’ispirazione nasce da una mappa storica del 1959 dell’architetto Constant Nieuwenhuys: chiamata ‘New Babylon‘, rappresenta un sistema immaginario senza confini che connette l’intero pianeta in cui le persone possano viaggiare senza restrizioni. Una mappa visionaria che viene qui ripresa nella sua versione contemporanea, fatta di linee della metropolitana. 

Il progetto è di ArtCodeData, un collettivo new yorkese che studia le connessioni tra grafica, arte e comunicazione.

La mappa mette insieme 214 metrolinee della metropolitana. Per un totale di 791 linee e 11,924 stazioni. Ogni linea colorata rappresenta tratte reali, che però qui sono tutte interconnesse tra loro: in pratica si può viaggiare da new York a Tokyo standosene comodamente seduti in metro.

Sarebbe bello fosse vero!
