Urban Form at the Center of Egypt’s Revolution

Tahrir Square, in downtown Cairo, remained the center of protests that led to the ousting of Mubarak on Friday.  The New York Times published a interactive map yesterday that displays how the protest and police clashes too shape, literally, over the last few weeks.  This map and time line is awesome for anyone that is interested in how the urban form of downtown Cairo provided space for the revolutionary events over the last few weeks.
