Transition-Scapes’: a new research project on interactive exhibition formats that depict future scenarios on the (energy) transition

In order to involve residents in the energy transition architects, urban designers and planners are looking for new tools with which they can visualize various scenarios surrounding complex transition tasks. Tools that can make implications understandable and discussable at the level of the resident: the living environment. This research project explores the design of such a tool: Transition-Scapes. These are interactive exhibition formats aimed at depicting and representing future scenarios around the (energy) transition. A design framework for the design and use of such a tool will be developed together with exhibition makers, design professionals, experts in the field of energy transition, researchers and students.
Transition-Scapes, has been accepted for a RAAK SME grant funded by National Organisation for Applied Research SIA (Regieorgaan SIA), part of the Dutch Research Council (NOW) and will be developed as a collaboration between AUAS – Civic Interaction Design Research Group, AUAS – Spatial Urban Transformation Research Group, International  Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, Arcam, Het Nieuwe Instituut, UNStudio, Bright, One Architecture, Generation.Energy, Clever Franke, Tellart, Shosho, Gemeente Amsterdam, Alliander, &Flux, Over Morgen, Play the City,  Universiteit van Amsterdam, Planbureau voor de Leefomgeving, TU Delft.
