Unrealized plan for Astoria, Queens, NYC. 1900
Note a more “City Beautiful” grid plan with boulevards and plazas as well as an early plan for the Triboro Bridge; no Hells Gate Bridge.

chirp: I designed and illustrated a map and guide to Golden Gate Park, and the Bold Italic produced a beautiful screenprint of it! There are tiny animals and tiny poops and a pizza slice and a hot dog!

Otomi Art in Querétaro | Mexico (by Boa Mistura)

The setting for Boa Mistura‘s latest project is La Colonia de las Américas on the outskirts of Querétaro, México. It is a humble community of working class people consisting of housing (much of which is self built) and small business: ‘misceláneas’ (grocery stores), taquerías, and cantinas. La Colonia de Las Américas is located across two sides of a hill, and has a ‘boomerang’ form overlooking the two main highways of the state; the ’5 de febrero’ road and ‘Bernardo Quintana’, which converge exactly at the apex of Las Américas — as a result the neighborhood is seen daily seen by thousands of people.
