Wikis in Architecture

The social and information networking features of the internet are an area of focus for Andrew Burrow and Jane Burry of the University of Melbourne’s Spatial Information Architecture Laboratory (SIAL).  The researchers explored the use of a wiki of hypertext links for a collaborative project relating to the Familia Sagrada.  One of the study participants was located at the site of the Gaudi-designed structure.  The other participants remained in Australia.  The wiki is used to share information about the project between an interdisciplinary group of participants.  The intent of the ongoing research by SIAL is to define and refine organizational structures for collaborative work enabling work zones that are easy to access and offer necessary security to participants.
