YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE


Data.Warehouse

YOU WILL NEVER WALK ALONE


Data.Warehouse
The Data.Warehouse is a marketplace for the new digital ecossystems.
File under

The human body is a sensory system that receives and transmits information. Today,the point of interest about the body has moved. The hospital is no longer the only monopolist interested in the data carrier.
The “Quantified Self“ is the phenomenon of self-measurement by technical auxiliary equipment.
Data.Warehouse is an architectural study determining how an architecture could look in the data-driven world, the manifestation of a complexe, abstract concept in the real world -as a physical space.
What is space in this context at all?Are we talking about architecturally encoded data spaces?How would they be characterised?
The Data.Warehouse is a building which reacts to this new reality and thus offers space for the change in the thinking and actions of the subject.This drama about the profound social change bases on the most important resource of the subject–the body. In order to provide this show with adequate attention,it needs a stage,an architectural site- the Data.Warehouse.


The structure of my building is based on the idea of putting the enlightening part of the Data-
Theater ontop of the capitalist area of the Data-Market.

The market is the physical platform of data trading. It is spatially correlated to the Data-Theater.
The visitor‘s position in the ranks, defines his overview of the Data-Market. Researching and presenting correlate particularly in the Anatomical-Theater. This typology is already known as a showroom of the pre-modern science. It is the space where the body is decomposed into data and thus visualized.

The Data-Theatere contains certain tresholds from the user‘s daily routine. These barriers are part of the digital disetion formulated here as a conscious act of the theater. Access is obtained by transfer of personal data. The revealed data are visualized on screens, supported by the parapets.
