300.000kms iaac lecture

Mar Santamaria-Varas and Pablo Martinez-Diez are co-founders of the design studio 300.000 Km/s, specialised in Data Analysis and Visualisation applied to Urban Design.

Both architects from the School of Architecture of Barcelona and faculty at the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, their research activity gradually integrated other disciplines and design tools. At present, they work with Data Analysis and Visualisation to propose new ways to depict subjective and objective mechanisms taking place in cities trough human-place transactions and collective dynamics -alongside the tools required to impact on them. Their essays have appeared in Wired, CityLab, A+U, Springer and Landscape Frontiers among other reference publications.
