These gigamap exemplars are organised into three main groups: content maps, functional maps, and structural maps. They are from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, the Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences, Chalmers Technical University and others.
Gigamaps are devices for actively co-designing our shared knowledge according to the needs of the individual designers and their clients, experts and stakeholders involved and according to the needs of the project.
This is a collection of exemplars, not a typology
The intention of this collection is to inspire you and to show that there are many ways of designing a gigamap – and that there are many uses and functionalities of the maps. Therefore, the maps were not chosen because of their quality, but rather to demonstrate as many different arrangements as possible. Each map involves a design process to reach a graphic interpretation that is tailored bespoke for the particular situation.
The maps are design artefacts produced in nested design processes. They are expressions of the designer’s constructed (or designed) knowledge. This implies a reference to constructionist learning, which means that learning is not a one-way process, nor is it to be compared to filling a vessel of wisdom, or a hard disk with information. Constructivism implies that we actively construct our individual knowledge. This implies that knowledge is internalized and individualized when shared. We suggest moving from using a metaphor of constructing knowledge to using a metaphor of designing knowledge. The gigamaps are devices for designing knowledge and they are the designed artefacts representing our knowledge about complex systems, and how they might be changed.
