As the contemporary city is increasingly and massively quantified, visualized, and analyzed, untapped territories are revealed. Data visualization makes tangible urban spaces that may previously have been latent, challenging existing strategies of urban design and planning.
Two days before the inauguration of a president who has promoted his own role as a master rebuilder, Storefront’s Salon Series: Urban Data Operations brings together key thinkers and practitioners for an informal discussion around the agency of data driven micro-interventions in the development and understanding of the city.
The event presents Nicholas de Monchaux’s latest publication, Local Code: 3,659 Proposals About Data, Design, and the Nature of Cities, a compendium of designs for networked micro-interventions in American cities. The book will serve as a point of departure for a conversation about whether systems of information and infrastructure can serve those beyond their builders, or even how they can be built by those that they serve.
All Storefront events are free and open to the public, with limited seating available on a first come, first served basis. Members of Storefront can RSVP to reserve a seat.
