The concept of #MakeItYourCity was to invite students to become one of many architects of a digital metropole. In a challenge, students from Austria, Germany and Switzerland were invited to build a digital creative city together with other creative graduates by using pre-built modular Elements from the Adobe Creative Cloud. www.makeityourcity.de
The contest is characterised by the 'joint' development. A city is not built by one person, but is a collaborative artwork of many different students who build a city from a handful of different basic elements. The fascinating thing about it is to follow the growth as well as the basic question of which buildings do make up a city - and how to deal creatively with urban construction. The result is a hybrid city, in which everyone works together and on which one can build on, just as cities and living spaces should be designed in real life.
Development of the City #MakeItYourCity
from june – august 2017
The following images house the collaboration of the work of nearly 150 students and myself and show the growth of the city during two months. I felt very flattered about the quantity of creative ideas and house-interpretation from students, given that the assets provided were very simple and I wanted to thank everybody for his/her particitpation in the project.
