London’s Hidden Tunnels Revealed In Amazing Cutaways
With the help of some vintage graphics, Londonist reveals London’s magnificent underground infrastructure. Via boingboing
The layout of London can only be fully understood if we examine it in three dimensions. Tim Dunn takes a look at some of the capital’s greatest cutaway diagrams.
Our city is a fascinating, infuriating, terrifying, beautiful place. As curious Londonists we attempt to make sense of it and the way it works so that we can better assert our own place within it. It is often said that London is an infrastructural palimpsest: layer upon layer of networks and systems. But that really isn’t the case. London, like any urban form is a complex, woven fabric of infrastructure — each system maddeningly intertwined with others.
