Parsons Information Visualization


01 Parsons in New York City

02 Parsons in the World

03 Parsons in The New School

04 Modal View

Inspired from Giambattista Nolli’s ichnographic map Pianta Grande di Roma, Massimo Vignelli’s 1972 New York City Subway Map, and Charles and Ray Eames film Powers of Ten, this interactive project helps visualize Parsons network of relationships with the University, the City, and the World. The viewer interacts by zooming in and out of the map to discover connections between local and global centers. In addition, the user can focus on a region by activating a terminal or node.

A pioneer in art and design education since its founding in 1896, Parsons has cultivated outstanding artists, designers, scholars, businesspeople, and community leaders for more than a century. Today, when design thinking is increasingly being employed to solve complex global problems, Parsons is leading new approaches to art and design education.
