Prague Installation Outcomes

“Air – Motion – Sound” is an installation developed by CCEA with the support of artist Michael Kindernay. It consists of a live performance targeted at showcasing the potentials of ICT for public space activation and awareness rising.

It was conceived for the I.P. Pavlova Square, one of the most polluted areas of Prague.

This very central space, between the National Museum and the Nuselským Bridge, is crossed every day by over 104,200 pedestrians and 81,600 cars*. Although there are more pedestrians than cars, the space is almost completely dedicated to car traffic, thus making it one of the most polluted areas of Prague.

The installation “Air – Motion – Sound” aims to inform the public about people mobility, air pollution, and noise occurring in one of the most crowded places in Prague and to generate a public debate around the role of ICT in making this area a more sustainable place.

Prague Workshop – Outcomes

output_6wDgYC

The Dathaton workshop occurred in Prague between the 11th and the 13th of November 2016 at Carge premises. 50 students attended the workshop.

The central theme was the activation of Prague public space.

The students were provided with a set of data, that have been analysed in order to improve city or governmental policies as well as concrete spaces. All data used by the students has been divided in 916 microdistricts. They could be combined to neghborhoods and these added up to municipalities.

How can data help to actively shape cities? How can we activate public space by data usage? How can citizens collect data and actively shape their city? Those are some of the questions on which the students were focusing during the three intensive days, exploring new solutions.
