indexing territories

Year: 2012
Location: Hunan University, Changsha, Hunan, China
Type: Workshop

Mapping and diagramming are exploratory and propositional processes at the same time, having an active and crucial role in the design process. The aim of this workshop was to develop the students’ capacity for reading information from fields and then decoding, synthesizing and systematically processing it into indexical models.

We looked at different techniques of indexing territories, focusing on networks, fields and dynamic behaviors both from the physical and the socio-economic point of view. At the same time we explored different mediums of representation, including the creation of a multi-layered maquette.
