'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam: Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data

'Moving Typography' in Amsterdam:  Exploring New Ways of Representing and Interacting with Data | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam lets you experience data in fantastic news ways.

Type/Dynamics at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam was created by Dutch design studio LUST, and the installation (as a sentient piece of art) searches for real-time locations in the news, including "Ground Zero", "Reichstag”, or "Tiananmen Square”, from there locating images from Google Street View and turning them into grids filled with new information. Instead of a typical photo representation, the location is presented in purely typographically form. Visitors are then 'transported’ to that location by wrapping themselves in all the news of the area.
"A visitor does not need to grasp all possible readings of a work at once," continues LUST. "Instead multiple story lines unfold over multiple readings. All aspects from content to movement, interaction, data collection and collaboration contribute to this new literature."

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future

Harvard’s New Ecological Urbanism App: A Glimpse of Our Urban Future | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

The Harvard Graduate School of Design released its Ecological Urbanism app last month. The interactive app adapts content from the GSD book of the same name, which explores how designers can unite urbanism with environmentalism.


Combining data from around the world, the app “reveals and locates current practices, emerging trends, and opportunities for new initiatives” in regard to the future of cities.


A collaboration between the school and Second Story Interactive Studios,the app stems from the GSD’s Ecological Urbanism conference and dovetails with the duo’s ongoing efforts to explore sustainability in our cities of the future.

More than 100 participating architects and designers have provided content for the project, including such heavyweights as OMA, Rem Koolhaas, Kara Oehler, and Stefano Boeri. And the ever-evolving app allows designers and academics to add research and project updates as they happen...

The Most Walkable Cities and How Some Are Making Strides

The Most Walkable Cities and How Some Are Making Strides | PROYECTO ESPACIOS | Scoop.it

Densely populated neighborhoods, commercial district city squares and multiple public transit lines all span the city of Cambridge, Mass., creating an environment ideal for walking.

The most recent Census counts estimate nearly a quarter of the city’s residents walk to work, far more than any other larger U.S. city.

Many localities across the country are continuing to push policies and planning initiatives aimed at making communities more walkable. Recent census figures depict a wide variation in commuting habits among the nation’s urban centers, showing some have done much more than others.

Nationally, only a small fraction of people primarily walk to work – the measure the Census Bureau estimates in its annual American Communities Survey. In a select group of cities, though, recent data illustrates the extent to which walking has emerged as an everyday means of commuting.

Walking is fun. And smart.

Norm Miller's curator insight, December 20, 2013 12:41 PM

It helps if you live in Southern California but then if you live in LA you never walk anywhere.
