Visualize NYC 2021
In collaboration with AIA New York and the Center for Architecture, “Visualize NYC 2021” is a virtual exhibition responding to the historic opportunity for change leading up to New York City’s 2021 elections. The coronavirus pandemic has laid bare the City’s existing social inequities and limitations, opening up conversations about how we might envision a better New York City for all. In parallel, the local elections in November 2021 will see an unprecedented amount of turnover. In addition to the mayor, 41 elected officials will reach term limits, including four borough presidents and up to 35 City Council members and the comptroller.
The Civic Data Design Lab was asked to help curate the exhibition and explore how data can illuminate the tensions and opportunities in issues that will be central in the 2021 local elections.
