Ethnoarch Design - Technical update

A building paradox
Starting to post again some reflections here, in order to refresh the contents while I finish the invisible task of Ethnoarch's technical setup (working in this moment on the participatory area of the site). I expect to post at least one of these reflections every two weeks. They come from reading material for school.
This one talks about the world's housing deficit problem, and how it might never be completely solved because of a sort of housing-specific version of Achilles and the Turtle's paradox. But also, where are we architects, and our fondness for creating objects in the middle of that paradox? Click here to read

Ethnoarch Design - Technical update

Database: Getting there… (Get ready to register!)
I previously published a note about the crucial update to Ethnoarch in relation to the traditional buildings database, which is the main, and long delayed, purpose of this website. I was so busy working on the database that even publishing the note took two months, but I am happy to report, three more months after, that I finished the work. The translation work ended, and also the very critical online importing of the bilingual database, which turned out to be a considerably heavy document to put online, 20 megabytes, something that made the uploading work a little complicated. But there is more than that; more databases are ready, and the work in general is only a few days away from being public. This is, then, a good moment to register as a member. Click here to read
