Antipodes/Measuring the World
The texts and projects developed in the Antipodes / Measuring the World workshops and documented here all challenge, in different ways, the cartographic conventions of mapping as a static and codified form of representation, to propose a reconsideration of mapping as dynamic process. The research proposes a wider redefinition of 'mapping' as an active process of making space that employs and goes beyond cartography, and is in itself already a 'project'. It suggests that it is necessary to look away from the specifics of architecture, and focus on mapping as a process, in order to better understand the possible implications of mapping in architecture.
