For 15 years the Urban Age project, based at LSE Cities, has investigated the future of cities. This has required the development of comparative visualisation techniques to analyse the performance of cities from across the world. Data availably is often limited and frequently inconsistent. This event connected the backstory of data to the design you see all around you.
As partner to London Design Festival, Arup held this event in collaboration with LSE Cities around the power of turning data into design to shape better cities.
The event, which explored the role of design and digital innovation on data, wasbased around the Conflicts of an Urban Age exhibition held in Arup’s phase2 gallery space in London.
