arki_nopoly drop-in is designed to lower the barrier to engagement to a minimum, allowing large amounts of people to share their insights and ideas, while ensuring both that they feel heard and that their points are recorded as data for later analysis. It is tailored to situations where participants are passing by intermittently and is perfect as a pop-up in the public space, as well as for events and conferences. arki_nopoly drop-in asks only 5-15 minutes of participants’ time.
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.
