Maps are essential for navigat ing a city efficiently. They keep you from getting lost all the time. Yet they show few details of a place. They reveal nothing about how people use and experience the city. Jan Rothuizen is filling the void here. His drawings are not totally personalized references, which would make them hard to understand. On the contrary, they are based on what might be referred to as the unwritten history of a place. He uses newspaper clippings, historical details and advertisements to build a completely different concept of the city.

On TEDxRotterdam Jan Rothuizen takes you on a journey through his unique drawings.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
