CityScope: New Orleans 4.001J/11.004J Assignment 2: Part 1 Maps Due March 15 Description This first part of Assignment 2 asks that you collect maps of all kinds of New Orleans and the surrounding region. These maps will both inform you about the physical context of the city and also form the basis for proposing physical solutions for some of the problems we have been, and will be discussing. In addition, this assignment will initiate our use of the studio space reserved for this class in Studio 7 of the Department of Architecture. You will be asked to place your maps in this space. We will visit the space next class. In searching for and sorting through maps please try to answer the following questions: 1. What is the extent of the city? 2. What is found beyond this extent? 3. What are the major physical landmarks in the city? 4. Where are the canals? 5. What are the names and extent of the various areas within the city?
