Uses of Mapping book
This chapter attempts to distinguish several forms of storytelling that often overlap.
Using a case study from architectural practice and also examples from the educational framework, I present here a methodological distinction of three different uses of mapping by architects who are keen to connect architecture with territory and urbanization with greenspaces. This also corresponds to the three different reasons an architect wishes to create maps: to investigate, to transform, to be evocative. Examining these examples also gives us information about the possible sequencing of these investigation techniques and about the ways in which they can be used in context.
