THE ORIGINAL LOUVRE MAP 

From conversations with visitors and my own notes on different paths and museum rooms, I cut up the official map of the Louvre in order to make sense of how people self-direct themselves through the space. The result is a prototype for an upcoming project.

TOOLS + METHOD

Using post-its and colored pens to visually indicate a path, I cut up the map and rearranged it to highlight points of interest, and show multiple levels at once.

THE FINAL PROTOYPE

A map that demonstrates the path, including all three wings of the museum (Richelieu, Sully and Denon), as well as points of interest and a dotted line for easy-to-follow routes and level-shifts.
