According to Trinh and Buscher, Metropolitan Cityscapes "is an homage to the cities we have visited and those that have inspired us. In making them, we hope to create a starting point for your own stories and experiences."
Each map is intricately hand drawn then cut out of paper, creating a lattice-like portrait of a city's physical layout. I love the way these maps are so detailed yet so nuanced; a canvas for us to fill with our own musings on a particular city, maybe one we've experienced intimately or one we dream of exploring one day.
