The Synoptic Office 'Alphabet Topography' by Caspar Lam and Yujune Park from Yale University physically depicts a love of the English language and thoughtfully makes each letter stand out as much as it is used. For example, constants such as "R" and "T" can be seen jutting out further beyond alternate letters since they are used more in English.

The design is physical typography, and each letter is designated a six by six square. The entire project shows the rhythmic flow of the English language and makes it visible to the eyes. Audiences can follow along the alphabet on the Synoptic Office Alphabet Topography model and almost feel the weight of each letter in the English language.
