Virtual IAWA

This new visualizing tool provides an interactive platform that assists one to browse the collections of the International Archive of Women in Architecture (IAWA) to gain multiple cross-readings from the breadth of the archive. Data in the collections are more readable and contextualized in multiple ways, with a process akin to data mining, enabling less obvious relationships to emerge to foster alternative paths of research. Unlike a simple search engine, this tool presents the women and the work of the archive through a unified matrix actively relevant to the participants, creating an access point for self-relation and engagement with others.
