ARCADE’s mission is to incite dialogue about design and the built environment. Bringing together voices from multiple design disciplines – architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, industrial design, graphic design, etc. – and the arts community, ARCADE is dedicated to providing a Northwest (US) perspective while also working with contributors from around the world. ARCADE is a nonprofit organization based in Seattle. Content is available online and in print.
ARCADE issue 31.4's feature section, "Designing Data," examines the multiple ways that information has been visualized in an effort to increase understanding and generate knowledge; the issue includes a small collection of work demonstrating the unique ability of data visualizations to combine both art and science to communicate and amplify meaningful messages.
