For our project, we wanted to map something out both fun and useful to college students. We came up with the idea of mapping out all of the coffee shops within a half mile radius of the university center. We then expanded our idea and rated each coffee shop, as well as mark where there was a heavy flow of NYU students (places to avoid).
We decided to hang our project from the ceiling and draw out the map on plexiglass. We then drilled holes into the plexiglass where the coffee shops were. We then hung cups, lids, and sleeves from these shops with different colored strings. Red for bad, orange for okay, and pink for good. If a place had too many NYU students, those cups were wrapped with purple string.
