Urban Data Operations with Nicholas de Monchaux Jan 18

Don't miss out on this great discussion between Geoff Manaugh and Nicholas de Monchaux on Urban Data Operations at the Storefront for Art & Architecture this January 18 from 7-9pm!

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.
