The ‘Condensed Design Project’ aims to discuss and reflect on how the historical experience can be produced, by analyzing and interpreting essays and simulations of the relations between ‘historical events’ and ‘research methodologies in history’, with a dynamic data visualization system. The goal is to understand how the visualization systems can be prepared to support researchers, professor and students to live the historical experience, in order to promote knowledge building processes in design history. It emphasizes history’s concern about bringing back, using the ‘historical sources’ approach, the necessary ‘historical facts’ to describe a certain ‘historical event’.
