Thesis project in progress: Dataplace expores the potential between digital space and real space through architecture. It looks at what the 'cloud' really is, the cloud is more than your unread emails. It occurs in real places, and often two, that run on large amounts of electricity and carbon emissions. Dataplace explores this paradox in a building designed to make the internet legible to the public. The program is a 'internet exchange' a startup coworking space and a social media park below.
