Mapping the Geography of Innovation in Barcelona

by Joshua New

Under the direction of Barcelona’s chief architect Vicente Guallart, design firm “300.000 km/s” has created an elaborate data visualization that maps factors that influence where innovation occurs in the city. The visualization plots the location of innovative initiatives, companies, and research hubs and imposes four layers of context over the city: sociodemographic context, such as age of residents and rent prices; urban fabric, such as the makeup of industrial and residential buildings; functional indicators, such as public transportation; and spatial organization, such as proximity to research universities.

Take a look.
