The FABRIC of AccraThe Siemens Accra FABRIC is a visual data representation that was created using vast amounts of infrastructural, energy and industrial data from one of Ghana’s oldest districts - Jamestown. As Siemens we understand how important telling a story through fabric is across cultures and languages in Africa. Through the use of data we were able to understand the intricate layout of the district. Our fabrics that we have previously launched in South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya showcases African ecosystems and how by understanding data patterns we are able to make smarter decisions on how to connect people, technology and ultimately create sustainable solutions with purpose.
Making the pattern
The data layers that make up the pattern was informed by data of Jamestown's population, water delivery, gas lines, fibre, roads systems and land usage. Siemens expertise was able to extract patterns from those data layers to produce a fabric that is visually appealling and informative. This expertise allows us to provide cities, industries and commercial buildings with sustainable solutions that are resilient, efficient & above all - intelligent.
