IntroductionDownload the session synthesis
Participatory Design: Learn how community-building projects can engage local stakeholders, pull insights from diverse perspectives, and influence urban redevelopment authorities.
Urban Theory: Hear state-of-the-art theories and approaches to sustainable heritage, with reflections from experienced architects, academics, and urban thinkers. Identify critical issues of urban gentrification, place-making, and the pressures faced by historic urban neighbourhoods in Southern Europe.
Information-Communication Technology: See state-of-the-art technologies deployed for rapid 3D reconstruction, documentation, and urban co-design with non-experts. We specifically explore augmented reality as a possible solution to scalable public outreach.

Data collection and co-creation was facilitated by the use of citizen volunteered geolocation software (readily available to the participants by the organisers), such as DEUSTO Tech DARIAH app. A separate mobile augmented-reality app, WIKAR, was used to facilitate a participatory project development processes. With this tool, workshop participants could visualize various project proposals directly projected in the real spaces subject of the project through their iOS and Android mobile devices.
