Project -

Accessing Open Innovation in the formation of urban citizenship -

Exploring the access of information, both in the digital and physical scope of the urban space, the crux of the research will include finding opportunities of ownership of information in the digital arena and how that same data and analysis applies to the integration of the operation of cities, and how designers, policy makers, and urban economists apply this information to operate and run a city. Largely focusing on the social impact and ownership of information that is distributed amongst the various private and public players within New York, as the target city, the scope of research will also expand to various larger cities in Europe, Asia, and potentially Central/South America. The finished and work in progress data and analysis will be reported through an open source website, whereby the data and gathered information will be publicly available, with approval by Parsons, School of Design Strategies.
