Ce n’est pas le monde_Chitra Ahuja

A question arises after every different theory and argument of many experts and legends; if neither this nor that then what is a map or what does mapping mean in literal sense?Many experts had their words spoken but what they meant was that map is a “proposition”. It is a green signal, an affirmative stand on what is where repitativaly , whether asked today or a century later. The existence of the society nowadays is based on the flow of information. Architecture, perceived on point in a particular context is no longer sufficient. The value and the survival of a particular architecture and its contents depend on the amount of information it offers. The introduction of these new parameters of value into the architecture leads to the symbiosis of architectural and informational means. The term “mapping”, taken from the virtual world, appropriately describes the idea of new architectural expressions. And as said “ if we can’t catch the real world with a map does not mean we can’t map the real world.
