As new sources and strategies for data collection and analysis become available to the architectural profession, data-driven practices and methods are paramount to shaping the next generation of design. Leading data evangelists and design experts will identify, discuss, and share ideas on the tools and techniques integral to the success of a project’s data life cycle, from conception to production to post-occupancy. Our first panel explored how and why data must be used to design, measure, and learn from buildings and occupants to improve the architectural product. Now, some of NYC’s best and brightest will show you how to better leverage data within your own practice to improve and iterate on the design and performance of your work. Our panel will focus closely on human, social, and urban data sets.
The increasing amount of data available to architects and designers represents an exciting opportunity to improve projects and profits, from work processes and client relationships to document management and strategic collaboration. With the pressure on architects to differentiate their business with faster, cheaper, and more valuable services in an ever-expanding data ecosystem, the critical moment is now. Leverage the skills and tools of our profession to shape the next-generation of data-driven design.
