This research project was conducted with the goal of developing a digital archive using interactive media and open source applications to generate a multi-faceted public community database for the state of New Mexico. This research documents the architectural and culture of historic communities around the state of New Mexico.
The data model is a collaborative, inter-disciplinary effort that re-examines the boundaries of traditional architectural research and moves towards a working model incorporating a faculty- student team whose expertise lie in a variety of disciplines. Areas of expertise include landscape architecture, historical pres- ervation, architecture, community and regional planning, economics and demo-graphics, informatics and digital visualization.
This demonstration project evolved into a multi-media data repository intended to both empower and enable the community to take control of their future by engaging in conversations with local and global communities.
