Reorganized Cities

French artist Armelle Caron takes maps of cities and reorganizes the individual blocks into ordered rows. The process transforms a chaotic city into a unrecognizable, but systematic assemblage of shapes. I’ll be honest, the sizes of the images below don’t do the designs justice. Check out Armelle’s website to see larger versions of even more cities, or click on the city names below to see the full size images.

    These city maps, reassembled, have almost an organic feel– ice, trees, grassy stubble. A whole new landscape!
