While searching for images of freeways in Los Angeles, I ran across these ‘quilts’ of aerial images of cities done by Nikolas Schiller that I found mind-blowing.  Maps are of special interest to a lot of us studying the built environment because through design we constantly represent cities through known working methods but are constantly being challenged to look at cities in a different paradigm.  I think these maps accomplish that.
