design thinking initiatives for a better urban life

Design critics: Belinda Tato and Jose Luis Vallejo, principals of Ecosistema Urbano

3 : major air contributors

Objective: To increase public awareness of air quality and improve upon existing initiatives to allow individuals to positively engage with the information.

Our project aims to engage the public in a user friendly manner to help raise awareness and inform daily habits. It does this in three phases of involvement: (1) awareness: through the sensor grid; (2) engagement; through the online interface mapping; and (3) commitment; by engaging individuals in the cause to improve air quality and empowering them with personal monitoring devices.

This project lays a foundation for further implementation of air awareness initiatives in Portland, OR. (more…)
