Through a usercentred design approach, the workshop aims to propose strategies for enhancing walkability in cities with the aid of new technologies and associated data.
What you will get out of this workshop
A practical demonstration of novel technologies that allow for a better understanding of walkable environments, an exploration of a number of challenges concerning walkability and the collaborative development of design solutions to overcome these challenges.
The workshop will feature talks on the challenges and solutions to walking in cities and discuss key case study examples. It will also feature a practical introduction to and demonstration of innovative technologies that allow for a better understanding of the walkability of environments. Using the technologies, workshop participants will have the opportunity to analysis and explore a range of proposed walkability challenges and to collaboratively develop solutions to these challenges. The workshop aims to bring multiple disciplines and perspectives together to design new ideas for the benefit of improved walking experiences.
