Now through November 7th, the Architectural League of New York brings us an incredible-sounding exhibit at The Urban Center. It’s called Toward the Sentient City and focuses on the use of mobile, sensor and other new technologies in city planning and architecture. A major feature of the exhibition is the Trash Track project from MIT’s SENSEable City Lab, which we’ve lauded here before. Check out the project Web site for images of some of the trash they’ve tracked through NYC and Seattle.
I hope to check out this exhibit before it closes a, because I can’t get enough of trash track and b, because I’m curious about all the other urban computing that’s going on out there. The mobile world truly seems to be exploding and I am constantly impressed by new and innovative applications toward the common good.
