Urban Layers

by Morphocode

Urban Layers is an interactive map created by Morphocode that explores the structure of Manhattan’s urban fabric.
The map lets you navigate through historical fragments of the borough that have been preserved and are currently embedded in its densely built environment. The rigid archipelago of building blocks has been mapped as a succession of structural episodes starting from 1765.
