arki_nopoly classic

arki_nopoly classic is the sit-down tabletop edition of our tool, which allows groups of 4-5 people to walk through their experiences of qualities, issues and possible solutions for a project area in detail. This version is ideal for allowing people of all ages and roles to engage in in-depth discussion and idea generation, while recording these exchanges as data points for later analysis. arki_nopoly classic can accommodate up to 150 people at a time, takes approx. 2 hours, and works best when participants sign up beforehand.

Collaboration through gamification
arki_nopoly is a tool that enables citizens and different stakeholders to collaborate and learn from each other to develop cities. It proposes an innovative solution to the current urbanization problem through bridging the gap between stakeholders by providing everyone a seat at the table, literally. The game is centered around an area, scaling from a room to the entire city, and aims to familiarize the players with their immediate surrounding through discussion, analysis, reflection and suggestions to improve it. Through gamification, it offers a great way to create a discussion among people with different (and sometimes conflicting) opinions and to turn complex concepts into more comprehensible ones. The game offers a platform through which citizens and stakeholders can vocalize and discuss their ideas for future development of a specific area. It does this by creating an interactive and inclusive idea generation process, encouraging a smoother urban transformation through activating their knowledge and giving them a chance to share their ideas and concerns with their peers. arki_nopoly is an optimal way to collect data about our cities and the way people use them, and helps create a catalogue of dreams and ideas for the city. This data is invaluable, not only because of its accuracy, but it’s also a great source of inspiration for developers and designers.
