Park Circle Quilt – Interactive

Park Circle Quilt - Interactive by Nikolas Schiller

I took the 9,000 x 6,000 version (one half the original) of Park Circle Quilt reduced it in size one half (to 4,500 x 3,000), then doubled the width by copying the quilt (final dimensions: 9,000 x 3,000). Using the program Make Cubic I made a Quicktime Virtual Reality environment of the location. It’s about 20 megabytes so be patient while it downloads.

Park Circle Quilt by Nikolas Schiller

Like Dupont Circle, Grant Circle, Park La Brea, and Ladd’s Addition, I’ve used another street circle for a map. I really like making these maps too. I’ve found that some of the coolest maps are the ones that have their own geometry that I am able to exploit. After scouring Los Angeles the other day I stumbled upon this small plot of land in Inglewood that has a small circle (Park Circle) with 5 streets radiating from it and decided it was good enough to remake. Similar to Dupont Circle Quilt #2, the two circles combine to create an added effect that I find interesting.

If you know of locations that have a circle and are in a large city in America (and not DC), please send me info about the location!
