Framtidskikaren

Urban city planning present several challenges such as engaging and informing affected citizens. Framtidskikare, "The future binochulars" is a collaboration between RISE Interactive and Lundby district of Gothenburg. Collaborative processes and tools were developed in order to facilitate collaboration between city planners, architects, teachers and elementary school students. The project resulted in a toolkit which was used in several sessions, facilitating democratization and knowledge spreading regarding city planning.

The main tool, created in the project, is a mobile augmented reality installation would be loaded with sketches of buildings created collaboratively between students and architects. The installation allows students to see their own sketches come to life as huge buildings to be experienced in the physical spaces were they could potentially be built.
