ARCH 551 – Essays in Urban Data


This is a course in information design, with a focus on visual narratives. It is an opportunity to advance your research and communication skills in an age of information overload. This is not only about reducing visual noise, but also about casting data into legible form and resolutions. For architects the course improves data literacy, for urban technologists it improves visual explanations, and for the college, it provides counterpoint to other data courses in statistics or GIS. Here the technology is interactive sketches, and the goal is to bring, research, and develop a story.
