Designing with Data
2010/02/04 § Leave a comment
I just ran into a post today in the New York Times opinion section by Allison Arieff giving thought to wonderful new ideas in data collection as an important avenue for design research. The subject is space, and how we might be able to use / re-use abandon places within cities, using ideas of networks to make the urban environment both healthier and more efficient. There are a number of great links in the post, especially one directed towards a research project conducted for the WPA 2.0 competition by nicholas demonchaux. Words cannot describe this amazing video called Local Code, so go there and check it out yourself.
