Abstract

The research develops in the disciplinary field of drawing and representation. The workflow experiments the use of info-graphic BIM-oriented software and parametric models as a tool to preserve, communicate and enhance modern architecture and its historical documents in the museum and archival sector. The main objective is the integrated digitization of an architecture and its archive documents from the executive drawings, making the three-dimensional parametric model an interface for heterogeneous data. At the same time the model allows the virtual reunification of archived documents and facilitates the research, providing an overview of the design process, strengthening the system of document collections and introducing possible new archiving methodologies. Specifically, the thesis proposes the enhancement of the cultural heritage left by Adriano Olivetti and his company to the city of Ivrea through the work of Eduardo Vittoria, one of the most representative designers employed by Olivetti but less popular than other authors. The subject of the digitalization project is one of his most symbolic buildings designed for the company: the ‘Centro Studi ed Esperienze’ built in 1954.
