“Advanced Technologies for Historical Cities Visualization”
Edited by Andrea Giordano, Kristin Huffman
The goal of this call is to demonstrate how the documentation and understanding of cultural sites can be addressed as a multimedia process through digital representation of historic monuments. In plus then ten years involving the use of digital visualization technologies to explore art and architectural history of cities, we want to check:
all the concretized methodologies,
the expansion of skill set and expertise,
the increased outcomes recognized into internationally exhibitions and workshops.
Most important, the application of digital tools has advanced historical identifications and scholarly knowledge about the urban environment, about how it is lived and experienced, from ancient time to the present day. Our next step will be to apply the many lessons we have learned from studies and visualizations of city and other places, for this reason we would like to understand:
how to expand our scope to include urban studies programs researching cities;
how partnership will naturally become more expansive (with unexpected tasks), as we work in concert with complementary institutions and new sites of research;
how do we show the transformation of cities over time in pioneering virtual environments, namely with emerging technologies;
how to underline the progression of each city’s distinctive, traditional features;
how do we articulate in virtual form the involved social, political, and economic forces;
how do we animate the phenomenology of a city’s everyday life and experiences?
In this way we will aim to provide a transparent and usable “repository” of information for future scholarship and an integrated reading of this information in narrative format: we would like to add innovative means for comparative analysis, therefore bringing structured relational understandings of urban networks to light.
