Over the past few months I have been randomly tagging interesting things in a number of books and websites. Tonight I am translating those tags into consolidated maps. I have gone through the guide to contemporary architecture and marked up all the gehry nouvel tschumi etc etc. now I am going through my tags from the 1001 best things to do in NYC. (just flicking through this was the best background reading I have done)
The AIA guide is a joke - brilliant info but how could anyone carry that weight so it is reference material when I get home.
The 500 buildings book I am going to go through and flag the most sketchable (over the top architecture!!)
Standard tourists things are easy!!!
Btw the first thing I listed on my maps was ..... Yes you guessed it.... My list of interesting sounding tearooms.
Of course I WANTED to draw my maps like I did for Sanyo Domingo but... Impossible ... So google to the rescue!!!
Ah!! Travelling is hard work to get the most out of it. But lots of fun!!!!
