The Fall 2019 Mellon Forum focuses on Narrative, stories of innovative and interdisciplinary methods to address crises that change the way we envision cities and architecture. This session on Mapping discusses how graphic visualization of territories allows us to recollect stories and to locate them in the built context. But what kind of narratives are born of this technology? How do we keep this open space of potential innovation and not flatten the story into conventional modes of mapping and literal map-making?
