week 7: the form of data

How can we apply sparklines to the processes of design?

“Wordlike sparklines should often be embedded in text and tables, which provide a helpful context for interpreting otherwise free-floating sparklines”, for designers would one want a free-floating sparkline?

“Sparklines effectively display and narrate binary data”, what are some binary data of architecture that we could apply sparklines to?

Professor Alex Kandel, Univeristy of Notre Dame, constructed a 3-D scatter-plot where all 3-D points lie on the surface of a hyperbolic paraboloid. What are your thoughts of the visual representation of the data?

How can sparklines and parallelism be combined together?

How did Christopher Wilmarth achieve parallelism in “The True Story of Gift of the Bridge”?

Catrich’s The Origin of the Serif and Repton’s architectural before/after were similarly compared, what are other examples of how this can be applied to architecture?
