Nice read, Adam! Really interesting to approach neighborhoods through types of fonts. I was wondering what you mean with ‘negative’ spaces? And out of your post I get the impression (and out of my own experience as a former resident of the neighborhood) that this area has a certain character, which can be described as being exactly NOT like the neighborhoods you get to see as a tourist. So why is there a need to ‘make Westerpark a unique neighborhood within a world-class city’ as you were describing?
