"ATLAS OF PLACES is a non-profit educational and political journal of architecture, landscape, urbanism, photography, cartography, print and academic. Its goal is to question the politics of places and to stand out in an increasingly uniform architectural media landscape for its critical vision/research, in-depth analysis of contemporary issues and publications that illuminate the state and relationship between architecture, technology and society. We produce and share essays, criticisms, photographies, maps, designs, narrative journalism, as well as academic projects and university publications that deserve a wide audience.

This journal is independent and is financed solely by the editor's personal investments and the reader's contributions. If you wish to help and make it evolve, please DONATE"

Google LatLong: Nearby places you might like...
"When you live in New York City, everyone has an opinion on where to eat. And usually, telling someone a place you love will lead to a long conversation of a string of other places you should try. For example, one of the more interesting restaurants I've eaten at in NYC was recommended to me by someone who knew I loved a different restaurant by the same owner. And, when I told a friend I was heading to the Lower East Side to get some yummy knishes for lunch, he told me to make sure I checked out the famous Guss' Pickles right around the corner and that I might consider picking up some smoked fish at Russ & Daughters down the street.

Engaging Places
"Engaging Places will champion teaching and learning through the whole built environment, from grand historic buildings to the streets and neighbourhoods where we live. It includes the launch of a major new online teaching resource, This will be the most comprehensive guide ever created to help schools teach by using the buildings and places around them. Research has shown that teachers view buildings and spaces as an important educational resource, and want better access, information and support to exploit it. Schools will be able to use Engaging Places to access a nationwide directory of organisations and venues, including architecture centres, museums and historic buildings. They will be able to search for high quality resources and materials by curriculum theme or whole school issues. And they can access case studies from fellow teachers."

Archinect : Features : BackStory: Baltimore: "Screw globalisms, go local. Local is global at a different scale..."

Orange Cone: Firefox 3 Places: Geotagging Browser History and the Site Diet

cityofsound: The street as platform
"sketch of average high street...based on here and now; none of the technology is R&D...We can’t see how the street is immersed in a twitching, pulsing cloud of data...two caricatured possible futures that can be deployed to flush out a few more issues.

geobloggers » The overdue Places post II - Prototyping Iconicness
"something that we decided was fairly important early on, the photos couldn’t just be the most ‘interesting’ photos, as defined by our interestingness score. When we did that, we didn’t get stuff that we though was iconic enough."
