The availability and access to a vast amount of ever-growing open and crowd-sourced spatial and human centered data allows us as architects to gain fundamental new perspectives and understanding of space and spatial conditions. Presentation of the projects developed during the Seminar Urban Analytics in the Winter Semester 2019/2020 in cooperation with the community organization Schrill.
Computational tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are valuable tools which allows us to read patterns that emerge from various spatial configurations. It becomes a powerful instrument to generate insights for architects and planners alike.
Supported by the Barcelona-based office 300.000km/s the seminar introduces you to tools for data collection, processing and analysis and how to make these productive for your design process. We apply concepts of big, open and crowd-sourced data and their focused visualization of such as a tool to gain insights and drivers for your design.
300.000 km/s are a professional firm of architects, urban planners and engineers that provide design, data analysis and consulting services for cities.
