CityMaker is a digital platform aimed at encouraging dialogue between citizens and city planners. It is designed to be used in the early phase of the planning process, to give voice to residents about how their urban environment is designed. Different interactive ways for people to initiate proposals are explored followed by how the experts can use the data. The design project lifts crowdsourcing data to a higher place, which would be significantly valuable for the experts in the city to evaluate and learn from.
I am a UX designer who was previously educated as an architect. In my diploma project and some projects I have done at The Oslo School of Architecture and Design, I cared about how we could take the advantage of digital tools to help average people be heard in terms of urban public space.more
