Map of me Typography choice

At the start of this project I was convinced that Gill Sans was good type for this app. Theoretically it is, and visually it could if well.

I knew I wanted a type from the beginning of the twentieth century, sans serif, as geometrical as possible. In order to align with the buildings portrayed.

But I came across Futura whilst visiting the Barbican. It made much more sense, it is more geometrical, less detailed and the bold font, for me translate to type the brutalist feel, without being to bulky, illegible or cartoonish.
