Chez Panisse Family Tree Map (Spring 2012)

I developed an interactive platform to visualize the ecosystem and the relationships in the Chez Panisse family tree from 1972-2012.  The Chez Panisse restaurant has provided and continues to provide a great source of well-trained chefs to the Bay Area and to the rest of America. This system displays the trajectory of New American Cuisine.  I collected chefs’ information such as name, geographical location of workplace, employment time and their positions in the kitchen.  This platform displays the employment history of each person, along with collaborations between people.
