Bookstore // Fall 2012

  • Atlas is the design for a geography based bookstore located in Manayunk, Philadelphia. The concept for the design stems from the local road map. The design abstracts the two-dimensional idea of a map through reverse application and vertical extrusions integrating it into the structural support for the three levels.
