Back in 2016, the Jazz ao Centro Clube (JACC) came up with the idea for the Museu Temporário de Memórias, an exhibition at the old Armazém de Fazendas, at Rua velha, where objects and stories from Coimbra’s downtown merchants were remembered. They form an important part of the city’s history.
This was the very first initiative of JACC to perpetuate the memories of the historical center
of the city. However, its heritage is much more that what could be shown there.
The Digital Archive of Coimbra’s Historical Center (ADCHC) aims to preserve
all of these memories and make them available online for those who want to consult them.
It also aims to foster the community contribution by uploading content, and encourage the artistic creation with the latter, providing them free and dynamically.
This dissertation is about the back-end and front-end development of the website of the Digital Archive of Coimbra’s Historical Center and the respective interface/interaction design. In addition, it is about designing its graphic identity and dissemination artifacts.
