ABANDONED PLACES IN MILANO / DATA VISUALIZATION BASED ON BASIL.JS/ in collaboration with Andrea Zaccuri
CH / 2017
From Spoglie - Abandoned building in Milano
In March 2015 the collective VOLUCE was engaged in the problem of abandoned places in Milano, starting the project SPOGLIE. The research was divided into two phases: first, we collected data and pictures of the areas then, designing the book, we acknowledge how to visually represent them.
In collaboration with Andrea Zaccuri, architech and designer the project could be developed during the master at FHNW HGK year 2017-2018.
Thanks to Basil.js we were able to process 330+ places, managing their metadata, drawings and satellite pictures. The code we wrote captured the information from Google Maps and a datasheet organizing them into the book. Due to the complexity of the information, the use of a programming language was a fundamental aspect to visualize and understand the data. The final outcome is a connection between the architectural space and its digital representation.
The book was exhibited at Aalto University, Helsinky - Finland on may 2018 and Copenhagen Swiss Embassy 2017.
