Inspired by her previous career as an Urban Designer and her love of maps Bronagh has created this intricate HAND DRAWN MAP OF LONDON. The map is based on the 1914 Ordinance Survey Maps it depicts London before the destruction of WWII and the redevelopments of 60’s and 70’s changed the city forever.
Taking over 100 HOURS TO CREATE this drawing focuses on the elegant simplicity of the building form and the street network, leaving out all the text and additional information found on most street maps allowing the wonderful pattern of the urban form to shine through. The map is simply coloured and effortlessly elegant and would provide a great addition to any home or office or a memorable gift for all those London lovers out there.
This map is at a scale of approximately 1:5000 and covers the area from Westminster in the west to the Tower of London in the east, Smithfield Market in the north and Bermondsey in the south.
