Marion Starzacher is an architect and university professor for technology & design. She received her PhD of technical sciences in the field of urban development. Her research focus is on the history of architecture and building, spatial perception, technology and science and design-based research, as well as the research and development of artistic and creative learning and teaching environments. She is concerned with research-based and discovery-based learning and this is clearly reflected in her projects, lectures and publications in the field of architecture and building research, technology and natural sciences as well as subject didactics in the teaching profession Technical and Textile Design and in the extracurricular projects such as Baukultur- und Technikvermittlung, Let’s do Technik, Let’s GRAZe or Inventorweek, which are developed and implemented in cooperation with various partners*.
Technical Vision Talk: “Diversity or How to share more than words, graphs or figures”
People sometimes think that information obtained from data is very abstract, very clear and (almost) does not allow any interpretation. Anyone who works with data on a regular basis knows that the information obtained from it must be carefully uncovered, analyzed and visualized in a further step. This lecture will focus on the expressiveness of visualizations in the context of architecture as well as on the interplay of image, graphics, text and the art of asking the right questions. The arc that will be spanned starts with the first information visualizations of statistical data to illustrate migratory movements in a city based upon social housing data and finally touches on the overlay of historical maps to illustrate changes in urban or rural regions for finding out social housing hotspots.
