Augmented Urbans project aims at strengthening the integration of three aspects of urban planning: timeframe, participation and technology. It improves stakeholder participation and links long-term visions with short-term actions to provide high level of expertise to Central Baltic cities. For this reason, new, augmented, virtual and mixed reality technologies are explored and utilized as tools to support urban planning processes in guiding discussions, and providing immersive scenarios.
Our role in the project was offering expert consultation on new technologies and how they could be utilized in the pilots in different cities in the Baltic region.
