HS2014 | Information Architecture of Cities

The elective course ‘Information Architecture of Cities’ opens a holistic view on existing and new cities, with focus on Asia. The goal is to better understand the city by going beyond the physical appearance and by focusing on different representations, properties and impact factors of the urban system. As course requirement, there will be three short exercises.

Understanding a city is fundamental for the meaningful design and management of a city. “Information Architecture and Future Cities” opens a holistic view on existing and new cities, with focus on Asia. The goal is to better understand the city by going beyond the physical appearance and by focusing on different representations, properties and impact factors of the urban system. We explore the city as the most complex human-made organism with a metabolism that can be modelled in terms of stocks and flows. We investigate data-driven approaches for the development of the future city, based on crowd sourcing and sensing. You will learn to see the consequences of citizen science and the merging of Architecture and information space. The course describes origins, state-of-the-art, and applications of information architecture and simulation. Both rapidly gain importance in the design of buildings, cities and territories. As course requirement, there will be three short exercises.
