The Practice Map

Reflection on a body of work

Structured analysis of the practice’s work was essential for drawing broader conclusions. In our research, the reflection on 20 years of work began by mapping practice activities against time, political context and social events.


For this we used and developed the Practice Map, as a tool for overview – to give clarity in complexities through identifying key moments, links and developments. This overview revealed distinct streams of practice: strategic initiatives, competitions and built projects.

We believe that for established practices with a substantial body of work, with complex or specific requirements, the practice map is an extremely useful tool for illustrating and clarifying practice activities, influences and contexts in a single complex diagram.
