Public Like Displays

By communicating urban data on its place of creation, i.e. the city itself, citizens have the power to become informed and engage in public debate. We developed  “Public Like Displays”, i.e. a toolkit for DIY public visualizations that are flexible and creative, and able to adapt to the levels of conceptual and technological experience of citizens.

This project was part of, and received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 645198. See also
