Back to the map. New architectural strategies on the ground. (2017)

COMMUNICATION IN CONGRESS: (Communication in conference)

Title: Return to the map. New strategies architectural on the ground. (2017)

  • Author/author: María Asunción Salgado de la Rosa, Javier Raposo Grau and Belen María Butragueño Díaz-Guerra.
  • Conference’s title: 39 Convegno Internazionale Dei Docenti Delle Discipline Della Rappresentazione.
  • Place: Napoli.
  • Summary: The increasing complexity of architectural projects has driven the search for new graphical strategies. The use of the diagram has become standard practice by architects, used as a graphical data collection. Is it called ?mapear? diagrammatic action, assimilating the characteristics of the maps to the diagram, even if it is not. Although map and diagram may share some communication and coding strategies, a map always refers to a specific physical location. A fact that makes them a transgressive instrument that serves to criticize what concerns us Have consulted among others, texts of Estrella de Diego on the maps and Federico Soriano on the diagram, to find possible coincidences between Both. Other authors such as Edward Tufte in relation to design and visualization issues, or the opinions gathered in interviews and writings from some architects who face such projects as Perry Kulper, Kemp Petraf, or James Corner among others, have been considered to develop this research. For this purpose, we have used documentary sources containing the maps of those architectural projects that we believe met the following requirements: they were projects that covered vast tracts of land, their maps contained aspects of what complex enough to require their own language, or are graphically noteworthy. In general, projects that use cartographic language have been selected as an instrument of communication capable of criticising those aspects that, although physically intangible, do concern when addressing the issue. The main objectives focus to the first extent on establishing the differences between map and diagram, graphical concepts that are often confused. Once the distinction is established, the alleged transgressive nature of the maps will be determined as project documents, in order to find new communication strategies in the project through drawing. The study of the various approaches will serve to open the field of possibilities in this field.

  • Abstract: The increasing complexity of architectural projects has driven the search for new graphic strategies. The use of the diagram has become a standard practice on the part of the architects, used as a graphic data capture. It is called? Mapping? to the diagrammatic action, assimilating to the diagram the characteristics of the maps, even without being it. Although map and diagram can share some communication and coding strategies, a map always refers to a specific physical location. A fact that transforms them into a transgressive instrument that serves to put into critical that which concerns us. They have consulted among others, texts of Estrella de Diego on the maps and of Federico Soriano on the diagram, to find possible coincidences between both. Other authors such as Edward Tufte in relation to design and visualization issues, or the opinions gathered in interviews and writings of some architects who face this kind of projects such as Perry Kulper, Petra Kempf, James Corner and others, have been considered for the development of this investigation. For this, we have used documentary sources that contained the maps of those projects that, to our knowledge, met the following requirements: they were projects that covered vast tracts of land, their maps contained complex aspects to require their own language, or they are nonoteworthy in graphic terms. In general, those projects that use cartographic language have been selected as a communication tool capable of criticizing those aspects that, although physically intangible, do worry about addressing the issue. The main objectives focus first on establishing the differences between map and diagram, graphic concepts that are often confused. Once the distinction is established, the alleged transgressor character of the maps will be determined as project documents, in order to find new communication strategies in the project through the drawing. The study of the different approaches will serve to open the field of possibilities in this field.
