PUBLIC SPACES x DATA x DESIGN
For the last salon of the season we will discuss the use of data to develop cities. How and why. If we define public spaces by ownership, who owns our cities? How can we create spaces and cities based on users’ needs? What are the challenges and limitations of understanding human behavior through data?
We'll have a barbecue and some drinks going on 7pm to 10pm so you can also join us for dinner.
