Atlas of Re.Cycle: A Learning Tool For Abandoned Cultural Heritage
MetadataShow full item record
This contribution aims to develop a concept expressed in a recent paper presented at the international scientific conferences “Heritage urbanism” in Zagabria and “ReUso2015” in Valencia. Due to the large amount of neglected and abandoned buildings in Europe, the definition of heritage needs a new paradigm. The recycle of existing artifacts includes a new range of values that updates the typological, chronological and geographic extension of the notion of historical heritage proposed by Françoise Choay. This update process defines a new theoretical and practical horizon that entails new categories of mapping and new approaches of evaluation and intervention. The techno-ontological infrastructure that best works for this proposal is the Atlas: an “OpenStreetMap” based on ODC Open Database License (ODdL) and developed in a shared mode with social context. It can be seen not only as simple listing and geo-referencing of buildings or generally manufactured structure to “re.cycle”, but as a real learning tool capable of organizing and categorizing the artifacts suitably.
