Digital Cities: Philadelphia

Connecting the digital + physical worlds for a block-wide digital placemaking experience

The opportunity: envision new ways to make democracy accessible at the historical Lits Brothers block (above two of the busiest train stations in North America), incorporating civic groups, key city initiatives, and tangible, networked surfaces.

My role: I led an extensive, deep-dive discovery phase, along with a team of researchers, technologists, creatives and urban designers.

Impact: we delivered a framework of research findings, conceptual directions, content partnerships and interaction models for bringing this opportunity to life—an early kit of parts to guide the developer’s next steps.
