Violet Whitney

Violet Whitney is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP where she teaches urban data analytics and simulation courses and Associate Director of Design at Sidewalk Labs where she leads computational design and research. She is a founding member of A-Frame, an activist organization that advocates for collaborative and equitable approaches to architectural practice. Her research focuses on how technology influences design process and urban experience. Her recent work analyzes the ways by which recommendation systems are algorithmically segregating cities, generating spatialized filter bubbles and the potential for data-driven techniques like location awareness and natural language processing to reveal unseen patterns in everyday social media, video, and images.
