Palladio in Vicenza
created by docteled
Vicenza, Italy
There are many useful design principles which when applied correctly, can make your interactive software or Web site design more efficient and effective.

I wonder how you see those design principles being used in the objects in the world around you - not just computer software and Web sites, but traffic signs, buildings, etc.

I encourage you to put some of these objects to the test of one or more of these principles.

For example, how well does the principle of Ockham's Razor (i.e., use no more than necessary) apply to a familiar object or space? Is it an issue of too much or too little?

With that goal in mind, I have begun place some of the key designs by Palladio (an architect who worked during the Italian Renaissance) that I observed during a research trip to Vicenza, Italy into a map metaphor where we can comment on how Palladio achieved the needed user goals for his designs.

You are welcome to join me in this work in progress and provide your comments to the marker for each of the sites I add. Note: I will continue to add more of his sites and annotate them.

Enjoy,

Doc
