 The Truth About Harry Beck - Natural Theatre Company

Harry Beck is the designer that our class has focussed on and are inspired by inspired by. Harry Beck was a technical draughtsman for the London Underground. He designed the iconic London Underground map. His map was unique because it was as simple and accessible as possible. It didn't give any detail to the attractions overground or the distance between stops. Exclusively focusing on what stations are in each line and where they connect allows the map to become inclusive because it means you do not need to have any prior knowledge of London to read and understand the underground map. This technique has been copied by most transportation systems including The New York Subway and The Tokyo Metro. We can be inspired by Harry Beck because he teaches us invaluable lessons such as loving and supporting your local area, make your environment inclusive and build strong connections with the people around you.
