The new project seminar for the students of the department of Design at Aachen University of Applied Sciences will be about “Information Topologies”.
Information Topology deals with the organization and arrangement of information spaces. Often, the goal is to make information intuitively accessible and easier to find or learn, or to design a general strategy for the management of information and information spaces.
Information topologies often include hierarchies, information networks, tagging, navigation concepts, orientation systems, etc. Designers make these information topologies manageable and effective through appropriate user interfaces.
In this project seminar, we study examples of information topologies, evaluate them in the light of design practice and against the backdrop of current technological developments. Participants engage conceptually with information topologies and design their own approaches and prototypes.
