summary Information Visualization (InfoVis) is the field devoted to the study of methods for displaying data in information-rich domains. Although most of the InfoVis solutions have been developed by scientists and engineers, artists and designers have began to bring in their expertise to advance the state of the art. The role that architects may play in this development could be substantial. Yet, participating in this new design frontier means to master skills and knowledge not necessarily covered by traditional architectural education. This paper presents a four-year effort devoted to develop such InfoVis curricula in an architectural context. The course encodes knowledge harvested over almost 10 year of InfoVis research bridging 5 disciplines and delivering many successful academic, technological, and commercial products. In particular, the class investigates the use of architecture as (1) a fundamental data organizational device and (2) a research method of examination, response, and communication for InfoVis problems.
