Mapping NAMA describes the visualisation of Irelands National Assets Managment Agencies property portfolio which was established between 2009 and 2011. The NAMA portfolio included Property, Sites and Land Banks aquired by developers and held as securties within a number of Irish Banks which were effeced by the financial crisis. Although operating as a public body NAMA has never released details of the portfolio due to its claim that the information would further damage the collapsed propoerty market and as a result would effect the value of the portflio resulting in reduced compensation for a state led Bank bailout. By colating court room appearences of property developers, newspaper reports and other soft data followed by extensive archive research of Dublin City Councils planning departemnt NAMALab produced a cartographic analysis of the NAMA portfolio. This map was then used by NAMAlab as the basis for a series of projective urban projects imagining the poetntial of Dublin City post financial crisis.
