From the academic research of Architectural Democracy, there has been several practical implementations:

no frozen history, museums are places for discussion

 
Heritage are not just facades

Heritage are not just facades

The inside of the buildings are being destroyed because its cheaper and easier to build new!

We need to upgrade, not destroy

We need to upgrade, not destroy

For cultural value, energy conservation and social cohesion

Let's use public pressure

Let's use public pressure

go online and find the building you wish to open

We can now show the soul of the city

We can now show the soul of the city

Just open the facade by clicking on it

And add more memories to it

And add more memories to it

Click further to see or edit the stories and links attached to the spaces and objects

We are developing the technology that will take the facades out of the buildings and show what is inside. Then you can simply add more info to the space. 

 

This will allow citizens to understand better its hidden value, enhancing tourism, communal life and adding public pressure to avoid the destruction of our heritage but to preserve it with creativity!

 

What if citizens could have a shop window regardless if they live on the ground floor or on the 10th floor?

Film loops

Husband is at home writing papers. Gets visited by officer about defense orders. Tells children o go draw to another room. Children begin drawing. Mother walks in from other room to see what they are doing. Loves one of the sketches. Goes to the other room to show it to her friends and compare it with art already on the wall. Husband notices that the same paper is the back of a very important contract or order that the officer needs. Goes looking for the paper.

Mother leaves the paper on his desk while he is talking to the children about the paper. Finally catches up with Mother in art room. She says she knows nothing about it. Officer goes away. Man goes back to desk to find the paper and calls officer back scene starts again.

If you are at the street level, the x-ray vision of the upper floors will only show the ceiling. To allow interaction the room needs to adapt to your view point, so you can see and edit its objects

Interaction Setup

Interaction Setup

Users point to a part of the façade. The projection shows 3D rooms in the perspective according to the current location. The user will hear the corresponding sound to the shown narrative on his phone. A colored halo will correspond the colour of the phone screen so when two or more people point to the same room they know who is who. The different users perspective are overlayed. The actor silhouettes will be the same for different point of views.

We publicly reveal new architectural and historical dimensions of buildings, important for both citizen awareness and commercial purposes.

The Mannerheim Museum in Helsinki presents the history of a controversial figure of the world history. 

 

In 2014 we did the 3D capturing of the museum and we are now working on a platform to change this paradigma from frozen history into to places for discussion by making its objects and building editable.
