The Agency of Mapping: Speculation, Critique and Invention – James Corner- Poojan Shah

“Mapping is a fantastic cultural project, creating and building the world as much as measuring and describing it. Long affiliated with the planning and design of cities, landscapes and buildings, mapping is particularly instrumental in the construing and constructing of lived space.”                                                                                    -James Corner

James Corner is a landscape architect and theorist whose works exhibit a focus on “developing innovative approaches toward landscape architectural design and urbanism.”
