The Greenground Map
Inspired by the iconic London tube map as an alternative sustainable transport map. The ‘green lines’ are representing the connections between parks and could be walked and cycled. As a conceptual map, the lines do not exactly represent the real routes, but rather help to perceive London’s green spaces as one connected network. View the map here or you can purchase a physical folded map (£10) or digital download (£2.50) at Helen Ilus Design.
