Museum of London's new exhibit on London

February 8, 2011

Back in May of last year, the Galleries of Modern London opened at the Museum of London. Over 7000 objects help to tell the story of London's long cultural history from 1666 to present. WilkonsonEyre was responsible for the gallery renovations and although I have not seen the space in person, it photographs very well. Click here to see more images on the Guardian online. The space featuring "Booth's Poverty Maps" is a highlight. The content rich color coding of streets by relative wealth, makes these maps a great example of timeless information design. Read all about it at this NY Times article. The display of the maps is impressive too. The walls, ceilings and floors are covered with maps. The framed maps are hung so they appear to be tiles of the maps covering the entire room.
