“Drawn mazes” references a small illustration in Yi-Fu Tuan’s book Space and Place, “Distortions in drawn mazes.” The illustration (shown above) refers to the difficulty of drawing a maze after having experienced it spatially. As students of architecture, landscape, and preservation, we find it a fitting way to describe our goal in these writings and blog posts: attempts to understand and “draw” the cultural landscapes we experience and inhabit.

This blog is updated somewhat regularly by students in Randall Mason’s Fall 2012 course Cultural Landscape Studies/Fundamentals of Landscape Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania School of Design.
