The Eggs of Price: An Ovo-Urban Analogy | Strange Maps
As an architect, Cedric Price (1934-2003) was such a visionary that he inspired the Centre Pompidou in Paris and anticipated the London Eye rather than actually design those things himself.
Price’s supposed brilliance is hard to gauge, as very few of his designs were actually built - the most famous exception being the aviary at London Zoo. But if genius is the ability to convey complex information in simple images, then Price had me at egg.
The city as an egg, to be exact. Price condenses millennia of urban evolution into three types of egg: boiled, fried and scrambled - in that chronological order.

London Poster | Bibliothèque Design | Tribute to Harry Becks definitive London underground map by reproducing it using the two colours specified in the brief – red, for the Central line and black, for the Northern line. The other tube lines were deleted by virtue of not having the colour option to print them.

The layers serve as cloaks translucent layers and meanings. Each zoom incorporates a meaning. Marks, the key to be read as maps of cities simultaneously. In each scale shapes and sizes but the keys are different, the readings and meanings remain.

1. Element patterns and geometries result of image analysis principle of the project.
2. Read all outstanding project by measuring consecutive cross sections.
3. Delineation of all areas not covered by having a smaller internal height 2m section.
4. Analysis of the detention areas as the distance of each outdoor space program, divided into three grades: 2nd degree imprisonment (more than two spaces to the outside), 1st Grade (1 space away) and 0 confinement (contact abroad.) 5. Identification of homogeneous program areas associated with six outstanding ranges: <2%, <7% <12% and <18%, <50%, <90%.
6. Reading the boundaries between applications determined by: a difference of excessive slope or by a difference in elevation between bands> 3m.
7. Programme Areas covered after subtraction of the areas determined in 3.
8. Identification of four program units (from top to bottom): outpatient and diagnostic center, treatment center, halfway house and prison (non-violent crimes).
9. Demarcation of the area with elevation <a 0m result of the reading of each cross section.
