atelier avocado was commissioned for the book design of "Toolkit — Mapping Cultural Heritage" published by Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists. The key visual features a series of pristine yet undefined shapes and lineworks visualizing the energy and dynamic created during the cultural mapping process, which brings positive educational results for secondary school students.

Built heritage/Cultural Mapping is the mapping of the cultural values of
an area’s physical features. It enables an area’s physical features to be related to their (changing) uses over time, providing a longitudinal understanding of their importance. 

This corresponding cultural mapping tool kit was developed in conjunction with the cultural mapping training in order to help communities better understand places of heritage value. The aim of the cultural mapping toolkit is to provide a practical guide for secondary school teachers to teach cultural mapping as part of their curriculum so that students can identify, understand, record and map the cultural significance of places of heritage value.
