Mapping Commonplaces: Word Map
When contextualizing information for the Mayflower Hotel, I wanted to portray my information in a way that shared both written text and image, to provide an overall sensory impact. The words provided above are formed in a map to pan out the District of Columbia itself. The Mayflower Hotel is placed at the center; with the boldest and largest font; to showcase how it has become a focal point within the D.C. atmosphere. Placed only blocks down from the White House, one can see the proximity of the two buildings on the map. The bolder word choices signify key elements as to why the Mayflower is such a prominent commonplace. Words such as “Hotel”, “Washington”, and “North” show key elements to the hotels’ location and proximity.
