Environmental Data: New Mediums for Visualization

Short Description: 
As a consequence of inexpensive sensors, ubiquitous tracking devices, and abundant digital storage, the cities and buildings we live in have never been more monitored or recorded. Various government entities and private interests have created a tremendous database of recorded energy use, climactic conditions, and even social interaction. Despite the data's availability, it remains comprehensively inaccessible. How can new emerging mixed reality (MR) technologies- including digital projection, virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR) - relate data back to its physical and spatial conditions and transform data into engaging information? This presentation will describe a range of projects that model quantified data within buildings and cities as immersive or interactive environments.  The presentation will include a VR demonstration and conclude with speculation on how this process might be used in the future to inform healthy, intelligent and resilient built environments. 

Amber Bartosh is a LEED-accredited architect and interior designer who has designed and managed award-winning projects in the United States, China, Kuwait, and the U.A.E. She received her B.A. in Art and Architecture from Rice University and her M.Arch from the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). Amber is currently an Assistant Professor at Syracuse University School of Architecture, a Syracuse Center of Excellence Faculty Fellow, and co-director of the Interactive Design and Visualization Lab (IDVL). Her work focuses on the sustainability and resilience of emergent materials and tools for architectural application through physical prototyping, advanced visualization technologies, and hybrid reality simulations.
