Design Cases

We conceptualize place beyond the domain of architecture or planning per se, invoking instead a more flexible and user-driven orientation towards space. Learning from the cultures of the counter-establishment and remix innovations in art and digital media, we invoke the idea of “Multi-use Playspaces”, a public space facility exploring technological infrastructures, mobile technologies and materials, and placemaking community interactions that are designed to be freely extensible. Multi-use Playspaces aim to spark creativity and engagement through the cultivation of robust forms of play, learning, and engagement in public space. Here, we present our design-led development process in creating an exemplar Multi-use Playspace in the Adressaparken public park in Trondheim, Norway.

databloCKs – a tangible interfaCe for data visualization Ana Jofre, Stephen Tiefenbach Keller, Lan-Xi Dong, Samaa Ahmed, Steve Szegeti and Sara Diamond Canada We present a prototype for a Tangible User Interface (TUI) designed for interactive data visualization, which we believe will be useful for facilitating collaborative work in data analytics. Our hybrid system combines a tabletop graspable user interface with a two-dimensional screen display; the users interrogate the data by manipulating tokens on the tabletop and the screen displays the results of the user’s query. We demonstrate our system with demographic data, but we have designed our system such that the user can enter their own data to visualize.
