The Dathaton workshop occurred in Prague between the 11th and the 13th of November 2016 at Carge premises. 50 students attended the workshop.
The central theme was the activation of Prague public space.
The students were provided with a set of data, that have been analysed in order to improve city or governmental policies as well as concrete spaces. All data used by the students has been divided in 916 microdistricts. They could be combined to neghborhoods and these added up to municipalities.
How can data help to actively shape cities? How can we activate public space by data usage? How can citizens collect data and actively shape their city? Those are some of the questions on which the students were focusing during the three intensive days, exploring new solutions.

Data-driven Changemakers crunch numbers and deliver impact. Would you like to try? Join our Datathon event from Friday 11 to Sunday 13 November 2016. The theme of Datathon will be “Active public space”. The participants will analyse Prague city data (which will be given) to conceptualize practical solutions for:
Venue: CERGE-EI, Politických vězňů 7, Prague 1
Date and Time: Friday 11 November from 13:00 to 19:00, Saturday 12 November from 9:30 to 18:00 and Sunday 13 November from 9:00 to 15:00. Continue reading

The VIE workshop took place in Vienna between the 8th and the 10th of June 2016 at UAAV premises. 11 students attended the workshop.
The aim of the workshop was to provide participants, through lessons and practical exercises, with the necessary knowledge to design Active Public Space.
Each participant in the workshops developed technological skills and get understanding of parametric and sustainable design, new smart and sustainable materials for construction, the potentials of different hardware and software applications in public space and methodologies for citizen participation, thanks to lectures and tutorials (VIE Workshop_Program).
The workshop the following lectures have been given:
on Energy Design & Workshop Task
Bernhard Sommer and Galo Moncayo, University of Applied Arts in Vienna
Arguments on Public Space in Vienna
on Micro-Climate in Urban Public Spaces
Visualization & Interpretation of Data
On Interactive Systems
Moreover the following tutorials have been given by Galo Moncayo
- Digital Mapping of Real Space Using Sensors
- 3d Modeling of Interactive Geometry
The students developed projects of interactive prototypes for the public space.
During the last workshop day the students presented the work developed in front of a jury composed by: Andrea Börner (UAAV), Chiara Farinea (IAAC), Anna Gulinska (UAAV), Yvette Vašourková (CCEA), Bernhard Sommer (UAAV), Beatrice Stude, Reiner Zettl (UAAV)
Call for applications to participate to Vienna workshop is now open!
