Can architecture become more intelligent? Can we be more engaged in the spaces we inhabit? Are there new ways in which we can experience architecture? Can we make architecture come alive? How can architecture have an ever changing quality based on its environment? Can it change your reality?

William Gibson proclaimed that one of the things our grandchildren will find quaintest about us is that we distinguished the digital from the real.

How might visualising data transform spaces into places by connecting people more deeply to their surroundings.

We'll be thinking and implementing ways on how to transform architectural spaces using live data.

We're not talking about basic projection mapping here. But rather how we can augment structures and data to transform public spaces.

Coding in Javascript or processing, and knowledge of projection mapping would be an advantage. Think of data you'd like to visualize. If anyone knows of any buildings where we could project, please let me know.

Luckily NY has a wealth of open data:

Maptastic is an awesome and simple JS library for projection mapping
