How does an architect play? – Public/Space Month 2019 – Exhibition in Budaörs

Gamification was the topic of the PUBLIC / SPACE MONTH 2019 program series in Budaörs – organized by Húsznegyven Association  –, where UFLab was one of the invited exhibition partners. At the “How does an architect play? / playHOUSE” exhibition we displayed two gamified tools of the UFLab Workshop, which we usually apply during public participation events or research projects.

The URBAN 3D DIAGRAM is a wood installation and it has helped to improve the dialogue between local residents, architects, NGOs and municipality officers in several times. By this gamified tool participants can vote on the current proposals by throwing a ball of the appropriate color, so the balls can show the current result – as a spatial graph – in real time. The proposals are always shown on the information boards, which hang on the side of the installations.

As a result of the joint research work of UFLab and UCL University in London, the CITY OPINION LINE gamified tool was born, in which participants were asked about public spaces. Players were able to tell their experiences of the designated Pesterzsébet action area in a spectacular way: by choosing from two different colors of yarn – that symbolized a positive or negative feeling – and connecting specific words with them.
