Remember that trippy dream scene in “Inception” where Dom Cobb’s mind turns a city into itself, twisting and turning like you’d never seen? This map from OSM Buildings takes inspiration from that alternate world and presents New York in a horizonless view. Aptly titled the GL Inception Map, 3D buildings are shown at the forefront with the rest of the city flattening and bending upwards.
Not only does the Inception Map provide an entirely new view of NYC, but it gives a fresh take on building heights and massing. It also allows the user to rotate the view from north-south to east-west and all the angles in between.
