Organizational mappings for the D.center Baltimore, produced in the spring of '09 by Jillian Erhardt and Ryan LeCluyse, from MICA's Center for Design Practice.

Crossposted from the D.center blog, posting it here partly because I really like this set of diagrams, and I think they look great lined up in thumbnail form. It's interesting to note that, as is fitting for a quasiexistent entity, operating through a kind of applied decentralization, these diagrams are almost all reducible to some form of directional graph. And as such, they remind me of the work of Mark Lombardi, about whom I've been reading a lot lately, more to follow on that.
