The workshops are aimed at students and professionals coming from the fields of architecture, urbanism, design and engineering. Each participant in the workshops developed technological skills and got a deep understanding of parametric and sustainable design, new smart and sustainable materials for construction and the potentials of different hardware and software applications in public space. Additionally, participants got a deep understanding of citizen participation in the design, programming and time-occupation of public space. By the end of the workshop participants had a global comprehension of the design and development of Active Public Space and Smart City Projects based in real-life environments. They learned how to make projects that integrate the design of active public space, citizen interaction and participation and the technologies of information, developing technical, social and economic skills.

Prague Workshop – Outcomes


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.
