U_CODE overview


U_CODE (Urban Collective Design Environment) will create an environment for urban co-design. Seizing the opportunity offered by emerging technologies to produce new forms of content and user engagement, U_CODE will design and develop a new kind of participatory platform that enables urban designers, architects, and developers to co-design and communicate their projects with the larger public.
