The emerging needs and the long standing issues curating digital assets from the Construction Industry - an HATII Research Seminar
On February the 4th, I have presented at the HATII, for its research seminars, a lesson entitled "The emerging needs and the long standing issues curating digital assets from the Construction Industry".
In this presentation I have retraced the introduction of digital tools in the Architecture practices and delved into the recent emerging procedures in Digital Design to discuss against both the DIDECU and the DEDICATE results the issues, requirements and expected development in the Digital Curation of assets from the Construction sector.
In this presentation I have particularly addressed this question: Which digital assets are produced through the Digital Architecture Design?
In this presentation, I have stressed again the need for Architects to be the principal curators of their assets and, as a consequence, the rising demand for a Digital Curation/Information Management education for students. I have also urged the creation of specific networks to coordinate activities in this field and pointed out that a common emphasis on open standards adoption for CAAD is both overlooking the still unreliable implementation of their specifications in software packages and giving for resolved a rapidly reconfiguring problem as the curation of CAAD data.
