Abstract

The research focuses on the value of digital archives as resources to be designed and exploited, tools for innovation based on the knowledge reuse system. Starting from the scenario that animates the debate on the new dimension of the archive, especially in relation to the topic of Digital Humanities, the contribution intends to investigate a specific context such as that of digital archives in the design sector. At the same time, it is intended to frame this condition in relation to what has developed in terms of research and data collection in recent years. Focusing on the theme of archives operating in the scientific and cultural sphere, and through the analysis of a case study, the aim is to examine how these archives organised in digital spaces are not simply repositories of documents, but rather an opportunity for connection and valorisation for direct access to documents, often unpublished sources, in order to foster the development of new research and study scenarios also for the category of design and its history. In the second part of the article, on the one hand the accessibility and structure of websites containing archive spaces through a seriality of documents will be examined, on the other hand the role of the designer within the design of a digital archive.
