"The subject is a project of an archive for contemporary architecture in Palermo, a pretext for an investigation about the accessibility of knowledge in the contemporary metropolis and, in particular, in the specific context of Palermo. From a critical study on places deputies to hold knowledge, we come to a possible redefinition of typology and to the proposal of a city where public institutions, libraries, universities, archives become places for the diffusion of knowledge through the use of new information technologies. The result is an interactive mapping, about the three research seminars and their connecting nodes: 1. the archive in the network of information technology -network – 2. the typology of the archive -type – 3. the archive of contemporary architecture in the Mediterranean-the –city- The method of investigation is the archeology of knowledge identified by Michel Foucault and applied to the study of architecture: from archetype research to their declination, until the definition of possible architectural projects. The language is the architecture one, a logic narration by images. Visiting the site it is possible by following the track of a single workshop until the crossing-point with the other research groups, or, entering freely into any point of the map, coming back to the archetypes and losing you in a psycho-geographical drift."
