City of Sociopaths 06.29.12
Finally, I think I solved the problem of what the buildings should look like for the City of Sociopaths. When I started the Chicago map last summer, I was looking at two sources--the late 18th c. Horwood map of London and the 1739 Turgot map of Paris. I loved the style of the Paris map--the detail on each of the buildings is enthralling--but I ended up emulating the simplicity (relative to Turgot's work) of the London map. I just didn't feel up to the challenge for working from such a complicated model.
