Ichnographia Quondam 1 : the large plan of quondam (a [virtual] place in architectural history) 2 : the urban scale plan initially comprised of a superimposition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi's Ichnographia Campus Martius and the plan of early 21st century Center City Philadelphia 3 : the place of architectural and urban design experimentation that makes extensive use of the collection of Quondam
The Ichnographia Campus Martius and the Plan of Center City Philadelphia are the two urban databases within Quondam's collection, and both cities come to represent the birthplace of their respective empire and nation. Upon discovering that Hadrian's Tomb in Rome and Logan Circle in Philadelphia have almost exactly the same circumference, it was thus that the two plans were registered at this nexus. Then each plan was oriented with true north pointing up.
