Armelle Caron has started a project dissecting the grids of cities, and laying them out linearly. The above is a picture of every single block in Paris. New York, Istanbul and Berlin have also been dissected. It’s a really interesting way of visualising the complexity of the city and it’s network of streets, walkways and alleys. It’s amazing how many of them look like faces to me.

Thanks to Owen for pointing this out!
