Close your eyes and imagine taking a walk from your home out into your block or neighborhood. What places or things stand out? Everyone experiences their neighborhood in their own personal way. Share yours by making a memory map that shows the places that make your neighborhood special to you.
Memory maps often mix drawings and words, and don’t need to be accurate. Think about the sounds, colors, textures, and smells that are part of your experience as you walk around your neighborhood. Can you include these somehow? There is no “right way” to make a memory map. Your map should reflect you and your unique view of your neighborhood!
In addition to the example below, you can look at memory maps made by people from all over the world and collected by CityLab during this stay-at-home period.
Once you are done, share a photograph of your creation on Instagram! Tag @centerforarchk12 and use #architectureathome.
