CORNER.  James Corner describes mapping as a cunning technique used to expose new possibilities and to reveal that which had previously remained unseen.  How might we begin to perfect such a technique?  How can we speed up advancement of this technique?  How might we reorganize information that is already available to us in order to shed light on the unknown?
