Architypicon


Combining information design with architecture by literally looking at people.

Architypicon


Combining information design with architecture by literally looking at people.
Supplying architects with new tools founded on demographical statistical data.

Representation
My interest was piqued by pictures that are in Hoog Catharijne mall in Utrecht, The Netherlands. These images show what the future additions of the mall will look like. In architectural designs a lot of information is contained, like figures for scale and functions. But is that all that these figures denote?
Our society is changing and this all ties into the problematic issue of identity and representation. These infographics show that there is a disconnect between actual populations and the architectural population.

Future
Representation is omnipresent, it is how we communicate context entities by using meta-data. Architects need a more diverse and correct set of representations. This is where information design shows what a certain population is comprised off and gives architects and designers another way of shaping the future. With this project I supply the tools to combine demographics and photographs to create a correct canon of archetypes: Architypicons.
