Research on Social Status

Paul Auster’s novel; ‘City Of Glass’ inspired me to incorporate my views of my society into my maps.  Our lecture on The Flaneur and The Haussmannisation Of Paris made me understand how much people feel about their nation’s geographical layout, while also looking at political and social issues.

For my map I wanted to highlight my views on social status using colours. This would show the border lines for the working class society a.k.a my residence and the middle class society a.k.a where I work.
