Silent London

Simon Elvins has some nice work but one recent cartographic exercise stands out as a cross between the 1748 Map of Rome by Giambattista Nolli and Learning from Las Vegas by Robert Venturi, Steven Izenour & Denise Scott Brown in 1977. The Silent London etching maps noise levels throughout London in an attempt to reveal the quiet and hidden pockets of the city so as to make them a destination, possibly diffusing the noise concentrations in other areas.
