Count Me In for “City by Numbers”

I’ll be participating this weekend in “City by Numbers: Big Data and the Urban Future,” a symposium at Pratt, co-organized by Places Journal (which recently relaunched as a beautifully designed independent website — have you seen it?!?!). The event runs from 9:30am to 6pm, and is free and open to the public.

I’m simply moderating a panel — but I’m excited to be in the company of such an illustrious group of people:

  • David Burney, FAIA, Professor and Director of Placemaking degree program, Pratt Institute; former New York City Commissioner, Department of Design and Construction
  • Gökçe Günel, ACLS New Faculty Fellow in Anthropology, Columbia University
  • Colin Harrison, Leader, Urban Systems Collaborative
  • Constantine Kontokosta, Urban Science Fellow, Center for Urban Science +Progress (CUSP)
  • Laura Kurgan, Associate Professor GSAPP Columbia University and Director Spatial Information Design Lab
  • Malcolm McCullough, Professor of Architecture and Design, University of Michigan
  • Federico Parolotto, Partner, Mobility in Chain (Milan Italy)
  • Adam Pruden, Frog design
  • Mark Shepard, artist/architect of The Sentient City Survival Kit
