New project route…

New project route...

Whilst coming up with ideas for the form of this building based on the Low Tech/High Tech notions from my previous posts, I have re-discovered the act of protecting the repository. The image here shows a CRYPT, this is where bodies of the rich and royal were safely buried to prevent grave-robbers from digging them up. The parallels with my project are bigger than I first imagined. The data being stored is to quite a large degree, an individuals legacy. The posts they tweet, photos they send etc, will probably never be deleted. I will explore this concept further this week and look into why crypts are so atmospheric and imposing.
