Abstract

The unclimatised spaces between interior and exterior, generating the onion principal of the building, securing to different extends visual, sound, light and climatic penetration, have its place in almost all traditional architectures, performing as its energy exchange with the surrounding environment. “Svalgangs and Skuts”, the semi-interior spaces in Norwegian traditional architecture, are giving various opportunities of use and performance. They are serving as public-private and indoor-outdoor interface, developed in high potentials of articulation with different or even gradual degrees of permeability in relation to socio-environmental conditions. The GIGA-map is relating such spaces in context of their original climatic location, opportunities of use or inhabitation, options of penetration of overall environment and spatial dimensions, its distribution enveloping the interior spaces, world axis orientation in today location and climatic Exchange of the onion principle. The GIGA-map is zooming into various scales and layers, relating data and their development through colour coding gradients, their intensity through dashed lines and weights, themes through curvature degrees and arrows suggesting the process of the performance.
