2) What: The Park is already highly used but there is a lack of facilities to the runners, with this intervention, both the marks and the app it would make a huge improvement in the park with a little actuation. 3) Where: Terrassa, a city near Barcelona

4) Who: This project is thoough for runners but is also a tool to know from the most loyal users how to improve the park with their pictures and comments.

5) How: I developed the app wich is one part of the project trhough a website called appery.io. I don’t have a technological background so my knowledge in this fiel is very limited. I wanted this app to have a track planning section, a music sharing and a community section with picture sharing and comments. a. Data Analysis: none - it is a prototype

b. Design: Appart from the application I also proposed the marks which I imagine as old concrete test cylinder. This marks would help the runners to calculated their tracks in a less technological way.

opportunities little intervention - maximum effect

concepts
