Berlage Institute 2011-2012.Master class.Localizing Networks:Physical Terminals for Web 2.0 Engines
This master class led by Alejandro Zaera-Polo with Maider Llaguno Munitxa. Web 2.0 is marked by the rapidly evolving domains of e-commerce, social media, and social networking, which have affected all aspects of our daily life, reshaping how we form communities and cultures , forge social structures, utilize resources, and engage in politics. This shift in focus toward the localization of networks opens new ground for architecture, a practice that is intrinsically local. As a project we proposed the SoundCould Pavilion to visualize sound inputs (SoundCloud Web platform) and connect sound phenomenon composed by virtual initiatives of people, and physical activities in the city .
