This is a call for articles for a special edition of ENQ: The ARCC Journal. We would like to welcome contributions from architects, urban designers, geographers and other scholars interested in urban informatics, computing, sentient cities, mediated cities, digital cities and new technologies to reflect upon the common notion of urban data assemblage (Kitchin and Lauriault 2014). The articles should reflect upon (but not limited to) the following questions:
- How is architectural and urban knowledge produced?
- What do machines and computers see when looking at the city and urban life?
- What type of information do computers give to us as a result of their scanning of the built environment?
- What architects and urban designers do with this information?
- How sensed data are utilised in the design process?
- Is there any new type of knowledge that we can learn from machines?
- To what extent our understanding knowledge of the city is augmented by our extensive use of computers and algorithmic logics?
16 January 2019. Announcement call for papers
17 June 2019. Deadline for submission of papers
December 2019. Publication of the Special Edition
