how does one define space? by crystallizing multiple, sometimes overlapping urban landscapes by their visual terms we are able to decode a multitude of identities and their sometimes hidden narrations within.
the project is dedicated to the question of perception and memory are reflected in the visual language of spaces. by definition, analysis is a detailed examination of the elements and structure of something which requires a methodology. spatial codes aims to crystallize other tools of analysis enables to open up new discussions and other narrations which have not yet been detected. It needs the contribution of all the perspectives and methodologies to describe and communicate within a space. the city is a space of sharing and therefore an open source: one has to acknowledge the multiple, complex, political, social, urban, architectural, improvised and contradictory perspectives and layers of answers. how rich could discussions grow if we were able to present these narrations on the same level?
the design research project is based on several personal experiences that by focusing on the observation of the visual language of a public place, concrete civic phenomena can be detected.
