Personal Landmarking, Chris McCampbell, GDMFA

This thesis investigates the relationship between pedestrians and the city through personal landmarks and their individual views of the urban environment. Walking in the city poses unique issues of orientation and finding our way around. Although hand held devices provide instant access to maps and directions, pedestrians learn about place through exploration and discovery.
