NYC’s absurdist Subway map


From CR Blog

New York studio Triboro’s Subway map evokes the rigid grid of the city’s layout, but also its chaotic nature at the same time: it’s printed only in fluorescent red…

Triboro, the studio of David Heasty and Stefanie Weigler, stripped away all of the familiar colour-coded subway routes to create a map – if map is still the right word – that subverts its own function. It’s designed to a tight grid, but any legibility is foregone because of the use of one single colour.

More of Tiroboro’s work is at triborodesign.com and their Leftovers page. The Subway map can also be purchased from The Future Perfect site.
