The International Theatres Observatory is a cluster and a research group formed by universities and European research centers, led by the Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya. The main work lines of the I.T.O. are the creation of theatrical cartographies in leading cities, the recovery of the memory of the theatres at risk of disappearing, the technical presentation of functional plans of theatres and the evolution of new space environments for the theatric activity.
The I.T.O. needed a cluster and a 2.0 platform to disseminate in the web all the European scenic spaces, in more than 10 cities, and a virtual networking space for all the research teams of each university.
lDk solves the creation of a virtual cluster, as a result of the need of sharing a meeting point for a wide and multidisciplinary research team. At the same time, it allows the clear exhibition of the multimedia content over cartographic bracket and audiovisual and multimedia files.
The platform created for lDk for the I.T.O. presents a rich, multimedia, historic and current information of European scenic spaces, organized by cities, periods and formal typology. Information in constant growth and evolution, adapted to the needs and characteristics of each of the work teams that develops the research.
