Indexing in Architecture
051-0732-16L | Elective course | CAAD Practice
Have you ever felt like web browsers and social networks know what you are interested in before you even start typing? Have you ever wondered how web search engines manage to give you a link that most probably will satisfy your query? To achieve so, these web technologies index the world and our behaviour in it. They continuously crawl the World Wide Web indexing and characterising documents, as well as the queries we make and the documents we request. These sophisticated pieces of engineering promise us information and communication channels at a very arguable cost. But what if we could do the same locally? What if we could model the world and ourselves in our same own terms, so to orient and navigate in it? Would we need to understand everything in it? Would we find information or just entropy? And most importantly, can such a novel way to model the world enrich the way we think, discuss and model architecture?
