This session will explore the numerous ways that research and data are reshaping design practice in a wide range of project types and scales. Participants will explore a variety of innovative approaches to how data can be applied to help evaluate information and answer design questions as diverse as zoning analysis, energy modeling, evaluation of the functionality of buildings, and the effects of development on community. These approaches will be framed within the context of how the field of architecture can adapt to prevent the worst effects of climate change, while acknowledging the role that urban design and affordable housing can play in promoting social equity in America and around the globe.
