Ideas & Prototypes
Playable city ideas are a human response to the coldness and anonymity of the urban environment. By encouraging activities that bring joy, we can create a happier, more cohesive urban future
Here you can find out about Playable City ideas that people have invented and roughly prototyped. Some, like Woman in the Wall and BikeTAG, have gone on to be further developed, and many others have lots of potential to do the same. These ideas have emerged from collaborative workshops and residential Labs run (so far) in Bristol, Tokyo, Recife and Lagos. In addition to the ideas below, you can explore even more project propositions, by looking back through the Playable City Award shortlists.
