<nettime-ann> New on ICT Guides


.
Dear All,

ICT Guides is a service offered by the Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) at King's College, London. It seeks to promote the use of ICTs in research and learning through cataloging good-practice digital arts and humanities projects along with the tools and methods they employed.

A number of new projects have been added to ICT Guides:  http://ahds.ac.uk/ictguides/projects/allProjects.jsp

Highlight:

3D Reconstruction of the Unbuilt Project Pont destiné à réunir la France à l’Italie (1829) by Henri Labrouste

" Henri Labrouste (1801-75) is best known as the architect of two important public buildings in Paris, both libraries. The Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève, completed in 1851, demonstrated Labrouste's unconventional use of classical elements, much disputed at the time, and his structural innovation of introducing an exposed iron frame. The Bibliothèque Nationale, completed in the year of his death, is renowned for its eclectic reading room reminiscent of a Seljuk mosque: a light, top-lit round space with slender cast-iron columns, which support a multitude of small domes. Both these buildings are representative of the so-called Beaux-Arts style that flourished at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris of which Labrouste was a student. ". " See: http://ahds.ac.uk/ictguides/projects/project.jsp?projectId=766

 
Suggestions for new projects most welcome.


Kind Regards,


Craig Bellamy
