Designing For Play!

How can we make Shanghai a more playable city?


Techyizu is excited to bring you the fifth edition of Designing Shanghai on June 6.  This year you are invited to look into how we could design Shanghai to be more fun!  We are drawing inspiration from the Playable Cities event in Bristol, and seeing how we can incorporate the idea of “play” into the city and into our lives.  


Play is a compelling and powerful tool. It can change behaviour; transform perceptions of space; and inspire audiences to participate and contribute, rather than simply observe. For this sprint, participants will work together to experiment and prototype playful interventions that use creative technologies to rethink public space.

 -- From Playable Cities

 

As with previous Designing Shanghai events, the day will be divided into a morning and afternoon session.  The morning session will have talks from design experts that will share their insights into design thinking, Human Centered Design, and the theme of “play”.  


In the afternoon, participants form teams, choose a design challenge, and take to the streets of Shanghai to research the problem.  On return to the venue, teams will synthesize their research, brainstorm solutions, and create rapid prototypes to share with the rest of the group.


The event is free to attend, and everyone is welcome – designers, researchers, entrepreneurs, developers, marketers, artists, consultants, students, and more.  Our only requirement is that you have a passion for rediscovering the city around you.


Everyone can attend the morning session however you must register for the afternoon workshop will start on May 28th. 


我们如何能让上海变成一个更有趣味性的城市?

Techyizu怀着兴奋之情,将在6月6日带你体验设计上海的第五期活动。今年你将受邀一探究竟,看看我们如何能让设计上海变得更有趣味性!我们从英国布里斯托尔举办的”趣味都市“活动中获得灵感,想将其融入到上海这个城市以及我们的生活中。

趣味性是一个迷人而强大的工具。它能改变人们的行为;转换公众对空间的看法;激励观众参与其中,尽一份力,而不是仅仅作为观察者。在这次短期活动中,参加者将协力合作,进行实验,并制造趣味性的干预行为,用创新科技来重新思考公共空间。

和以往的设计上海活动一样,本次的活动将被分为上午和下午两部分。在上午的活动中,设计行业的专家受邀来进行演讲,和我们分享他们对于设计思路、以人为本的设计和“有趣味性”的主题的观察思考。

在下午的活动中,参加者将组成团队,选择一个设计挑战,并走人上海的街头小巷,研究该问题。之后团队将回到会场,整合研究报告,对解决方案进行头脑风暴,并制造快速原型,与其他团队分享。

活动免费,欢迎任何朋友前来参加——设计师,研究员,企业家,开发者,营销者,艺术家,顾问,学生和其他行业的人。我们唯一的要求就是你得对重新发现你所处的城市充满激情。

大家可以参加上午的活动但是下午的工作坊活动将从5月28日开始注册
