Very interesting idea from Emanuele Pizzolorusso. Crumpled City is a traditional map that's not traditional at all. He explains:
"When using traditional large-scale city maps, I realised just how awkward they can be to use. They are not easy to use on the move, as you need to stop regularly and spread the map out to find what you are looking for. It is also very difficult to open and fold the map back up to its initial upright size. The end result being that you aim to use the maps as little as possible.

Crumpled City Maps are soft, yet hard-wearing, waterproof and meant to be creased and crumpled. You can place the area that you’re interested in on the palm of your hand to spot street names then just screw it up, stuff it back into its case or your pocket, and carry on."
