ARCH3041F, FRI 10:00-12:00
Information is everywhere. Information changes everything, even how we get lost. Most people are more likely to check their GPS-capable mobile phones than the sun in the sky for orientation. More than ever, we experience our world though sensor enabled gadgets.
The challenge posed in this seminar is to view information and the art of information processing as a socio-technical design opportunity. We will ask: Can new qualities be harnessed by re-arranging quantitative data sources? How do we have to think about data in order to create new urban qualities in a data driven world? Which sources of inspiration should we turn to? What will it take to generate new qualities from the endless flow of quantitative data? This seminar, in short, attempts to map out a trajectory from information spaces to information places.
