Recorded: April 28, 2012
In April 2012, the League presented Beneath and Beyond Big Data, a symposium–co-organized by Omar Khan, Trebor Scholz, and Mark Shepard–to celebrate the publication of the final issue in the Situated Technologies Pamphlets Series. The half-day event addressed current issues surrounding situated technologies and the increasing entanglement of data, technology, and the built environment, and identified future trajectories for their evolution.
Omar Khan is an architect and Chair of Architecture at the University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, where he is also Director of the Center for Architecture and Situated Technologies. Khan is a co-organizer of the Situated Technologies Project and co-author, with Philip Beesley, of “Situated Technologies Pamphlet 4: Responsive Architecture/Performing Instruments.”
