Abstract

The possibility of acquiring digital morphometrics of high geometrical accuracy is changing the evolution of investigation processes in many fields: from cultural to historic-artistic heritage up to architectural planning. The MUDI project - the new Museo degli Innocenti in Florence - is part of this context: the planning intervention has witnessed the possibility of integrating the composition process with morphometric models of high informative density. Measurements and reference plans become entwined with sketches and composition logics. To survey and plan are indeed profoundly different processes; the former must start from reality, the object surveyed, the latter originates more frequently from the imagination, prone to think of, and plan, in future, what is still to be; survey translates into graphic reproductions, the fruit of an act of knowledge, describing and revealing architecture; planning evolves into elaborations which, due to inventiveness and metric indications, prefigures the space to be constructed. In the case of the MUDI project, survey was used as an instrument of assistance when elaborating the final project and as an instrument to control shapes and measures during the development of the executive plan, the most technical phase during the development of the composition process, necessarily requiring a spatial control with an accuracy range within the millimeter. Because of its intrinsic characteristics of accuracy, morphometric survey is able to reveal and clarify the volumetric complexity and articulate structure of the object surveyed: besides, supplying the possibility of testing data metrically by extracting precise measurement directly, the three-dimensional data base supplies a morphological investigation capacity, and therefore a level of knowledge of the architectural artifact, that is otherwise difficult to achieve.
