Data and the Future City | Call for Submissions


Urban Infill is the journal of Kent State University’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative. The current issue (Urban Infill 8) will be a series of pamphlets, bound together, that explore emerging ideas in urban design and city-making. Each pamphlet will correspond to conversations and public events held at the CUDC in 2015/16 under the banner of The Future City Sessions, sponsored by the George Gund Foundation.

We are currently seeking short works (text, images, or both) to be included in the first pamphlet on urban data, geographic information systems, and new design scenarios for cities that result from understanding and manipulating vast amounts of information.

We’re particularly interested in the older industrial cities of the Great Lakes region, but welcome contributions about other cities if they are broadly applicable to the topic or offer a useful comparison or contrast to Great Lakes conditions.
