NewYorkScapes Web Platform Delves into the History of Urban Cultures

These past months we’ve worked with NewYorkScapes, a research community studying the history of urban cultures in New York City, to build a powerful new web platform that makes historic data discoverable in digital and non-digital forms. A collaborative tool for scholars, researchers, artists, and activists, NewYorkScapes is an initiative that includes the NewYorkScapes Writing Group, an Urban Space Reading Group, and faculty workshops dedicated to integrating long-term digital projects into the larger collective research community.

We worked with NYS stakeholders to harness the power of their data catalogue for the new site and create a design that reflects the history of New York City in a modern, digital setting. Discover the details of this great project in our portfolio.
