Big data in the urban realm has mostly been used for governmental operational purposes, i.e. improving services or allocating resources. Yet how a city performs depends on how it is designed or planned. Often data that lies where impacts are felt most are either ignored or remain unidentified. Siloed sectors seldom look at the cross-sectional information to inform city policies. Especially in the rapidly transitioning developing countries where urban planning, building laws are often devised using out-of-date data, which systematically fails to reflect the radical developments until it is too late for public policy interventions. This talk demonstrates how the multi-sectoral data can inform just and transformational urban built environment design for sustainable future cities. The seminar will comprise several case studies from India, where urban engineering, citizen science and collective intelligence are used to derive contextualized designs and policies. Broadly, it will show, how data-driven built environment design can effectively inform health, desirable city-spaces, low-carbon pathways and well-being in cities.
