Meguro Map

2012


Visualization of land usage of Meguro, a central residential area of Tokyo. using Geographic Information System. It was designed as an alternative application of Joost Grootens’ “Vlaanderen kaart” for the Belgian pavilion of the Venice Architecture Biennale 2012. Drawings of each unit were based on typology of architectures in Tokyo. Diagrammatic color coding was made according to the function of the areas. Unlike the Flanders map of Joost Grootens showing a contrast between occupied and vacant fields, the Meguro map, containing the maximum amount of urban functions, pictures the highest level of land use consumed up to the limit.
