More City Than Water:
A Houston Flood Atlas,
Harvey Alerts

Category: Print, Illustration, Data Visualization

More City than Water is a collaborative project between UH Graphic Design students and Rice University Professor Lacy Johnson to create a post Hurricane Harvey Atlas. Expressive and informative maps were designed to narrate essay contributions by climate scholars, environmentalists, housing activists, architects, urban planners, and poets. Funded through a Public Humanities grant.

Map excerpt: Harvey Alerts describes how a Houston resident starts getting emails about her apartment flooding while she’s escaping the storm in Austin.
