Advancing Information Design for Architectural Image Interfaces

The development of a user interface for the Brumfield Russian Architecture Collection to provide greater access to the collection.

A Level II Digital Humanities Start-Up grant of $49,673 is requested for the design and implementation of an innovative and highly sophisticated user interface for the Brumfield Russian Architecture Photographic Collection of some 30,000 images, which has been digitized and cataloged by the University of Washington Libraries-- an enormously labor-intensive process. This work was supported by an NEH grant in 2006-2009, an earlier pilot grant from the Gladys Kriebel Delmas Foundation, and subsequent smaller awards from the Allen and Smith Foundations. This project will realize in a fully functioning interface both the possibilities inherent in the already innovative metadata structure devised for the collection under the previous grants, and the potential of the most recent techniques and strategies for managing and presenting large and complex data sets on the internet.
