Location Scouting

Sites were selected based on their traditional and neo-traditional cultural expression of Ethiopia’s identity.

Guidelines: the location must be mapped on Google earth for reference and are also forwarded for website development as the website shall indicate the data collection process.

Locations: are not predefined and may vary based on researcher’s findings

Church and Mosque

Markets (open & shops)

Souvenir Shops

Residence (with cultural and traditional relevance)

Museums

Workshops

Data Collection

Picture:

Must be captured with a white background for black and colored objects and black or gray back ground for white color objects

A cube of 10x10x10cm with centimeter markings on it must be placed beside the object for reference scale while taking picture of the objects.

Camera must be 8MP or higher for clarity

Resolution: 3264x2448

A minimum of 6 views of the object must be taken

Additional views may be taken if object is complex

Natural light is recommended for the capturing of object

Time must mentioned

Naming of the picture files shall follow the regulation of the research documentation.

Measurement:

Tape meters should be used for dimensioning

All data’s collected must use metric system (cm and mm)

Precautions must be taken to minimize inaccuracy; measurements should be taken in precision of two decimal points. Eg. 00.00cm

Reference points for measurements must be clearly stated

Descriptions (information about the objects):

Must be from a credible source

Sources shall be clearly stated

Stage of artifact (condition), material, texture, purpose, historic and general background shall be stated

Additional Software:

Additional software’s can be used to collect (here the personnel assigned to collect data can be creative too come up with new ideas to gain more information from site. This is in addition to the given strategy)

Difficulty:

Limitations during data collection shall be adequately stated in the report.

When:

The time, place, type lighting, method shall be clearly stated along with a brief description of the context.

Module 1

Here data collected from site concerning Ethiopian heritages from the past will be digitized and made parametric for further transformation during use for design. See the following examples:

 Module 11

Module 2

Here data collected from site concerning Ethiopian heritages from the present practice will be digitized and made parametric for further transformation during use for design. See the following examples:

 Module 22

Module 3

Here data from module 1 and module 2  or  models of both modules will be evaluated and are used to come up with transformed versions of components and are made parametric for further use during design. See the following examples:
