Virtual Event Virtual Event

This workshop aims to provide practical tools and examples for integrating Open Data, including NYC Open Data into undergraduate and graduate classes, especially those of architecture and design education.

Attendees will receive an overview of three studio activities designed by educators at the New York Institute of Technology to help develop workshops or lesson plans that introduce students to accessing and interpreting data-driven narratives. The presentations cover relevant data visualization history; the definition of open data, and examining the environmental, climatic, and City agency data sources to generate maps, graphs, and diagrams as the basis for community-responsive narratives and analysis, often used in architecture and city planning. Attendees will also learn the workflow for harnessing openly available climate data where students can map sun and weather patterns.

The ideal attendee is an instructor who will leave with tools they can adapt for their classroom.
