Skopje, 6-8 june 2018

The main goal of the workshop is to demonstrate the potential of employing user or citizen centred and data driven approach to urban development and urban design of complex developments on the case of Skopje, including the new clinical centre at the city periphery, and the benefit of use of digital tools and data driven research for the same purpose.

First lecture and study visit | june 6th, 9.30-17.00 @UKIM – Faculty of Architecture, University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius

The partners and UKIM students, through the example of the Torino Atlas develped by Urban Center Metropolitano, are invited to reflect upon the methodologies that can be applied to the translation of raw data into understendable images. Maps and infographics are analysed as powerful tools providing the citizens with more means to understand the city transformation, and policy-makers with a reliable decision tool.
