A long time ago since I blogged here the last time. A lot has happened - e.g., ALOE has become part of the European Project MACE (Metadata for Architectural Contents in Europe). Its aim is to create a common infrastructure for enriching and retrieving educational contents about architecture in Europe. In MACE, ALOE is used as a social layer - it allows users to tag, rate and comment on MACE resources, to create personal portfolios, and to contribute new resources.
Right now, MACE is presenting the mÃ¦ve installation at the Venice Biennale. The aim is to connect the entries of the EveryVille student competition, and to put them into the larger context of MACE content and metadata. Visitors can place physical project cards on an interactive surface, exploring an organic network of projects, people and media.
I think it looks absolutely amazing - Kudos to the developers: the Interface Design team of the University of Applied Sciences Potsdam. Great job! I’m looking very much forward to see the installation live this weekend!
