In March 2015 the collective VOLUCE was engaged in the problem of abandoned places in Milano, starting the project SPOGLIE. The research was divided into two phases: first, we collected data and pictures of the areas then, designing the book, we acknowledge how to visually represent them.
Thanks to Basil.js we were able to process 330+ places, managing their metadata, drawings and satellite pictures. The code we wrote captured the information from Google Maps and a datasheet organizing them into the book. Due to the complexity of the information, the use of a programming language was a fundamental aspect to visualize and understand the data. The final outcome is a connection between the architectural space and its digital representation.
