GREEN MAP, 2019


A mosaic map for the new San Francisco Airport Grand Hyatt Hotel that inverts the traditional map to highlight those spaces in the Bay area that are reserved for nature rather than people. A small gold circle indicates the location of the hotel and airport and situates viewers in the landscape.
