Smarter cities: Tales from a living lab, re-defining the urban language to create an innovative public lighting experience
This presentation will introduce the topic of interaction design in the context of the city as interface. With reference to an urban re-development program in the Netherlands, a range of interactive installations will be presented to illustrate how a focus on the end-user experience and the application of key experience design principles has been pushing the boundaries of traditional approaches to urban re-development.
