The eighth one-mile square of Louisville. What is at the center of this figure-ground map? Look at the scale of the buildings compared to past maps.

ANSWER: Map centered on Third and Muhammad Ali where the Urban Design Studio is located. The building masses compared to past maps is a stark difference and is a dead giveaway in relative terms to Louisville that this is in the central business district. I-65’s hospital curve is a very visible feature on the right side of the map and the massive convention center footprint on the north side is typical of these types of monstrous buildings in many downtown environments.
