CARTOGRAM is a multi-disciplinary architecture and urban design studio directed by Joseph Altshuler. We work in different permutations of project teams that include architects, graphic designers, cartographers, photographers, writers, storytellers, educators, and activists. Our studio is a laboratory for testing ideas on every scale.
Much like the infographic mappings that inspired our namesake, CARTOGRAM responds to socio-cultural, environmental, and political parameters to exploit the latencies embedded in ostensibly mundane conditions. We aim to create meaningful spaces that produce new publics and challenge people to interact in new ways. We believe that architecture can be both humorous and serious at the same time. We are eager to put storytelling back into architecture and architecture back into storytelling. We are cock-eyed but calculated optimists.
We like to collaborate.
