I had to first analyze a certain interaction within the city of Rotterdam and then come up with a design that would improve or enhance this interaction. The final design is the City Circle: a message board, that could be found on public spaces anywhere in the city, on which citizens could communicate indirectly with the authorities.
For the course 'Exploring Interactions' in 2013 I had to design something for the municipality of Rotterdam.
Why this design?
At this moment going to the municipality with a complaint or question has a high threshold. I wanted to make the interaction between municipality and citizens more dynamic, open and effortless. The City Circle offers a place where citizens could respond to polls and announcements from the municipality and where they could see what is being done with their responses.
