Yuri Suzuki: «Tube Map Radio»

The map is inspired by a spoof diagram created by the original designer of the London Tube map, Harry Beck, which shows the lines and stations as an annotated electrical circuit. Iconic landmarks on this map are represented by components relating to their functions, including a speaker where Speaker’s Corner sits and a battery representing Battersea Power Station.

Wanted to make the components visible because «it is difficult for consumers to understand the complexity of the workings behind the exterior» of today’s electronic devices. By creating a «narrative to explain how electronics work,» Yuri Suzuki hopes users will be encouraged to fix their own broken devices.
