This is why, and how, we broke new ground, finding an innovative and accessible way to visualize how (much) Västerås develops.
Technology can help ordinary people understand urban planning and architecture better, and give them information when and where it suits them. In order to get more residents to understand urban development projects, and perhaps even get more people interested in them, Västerås city created the augumented reality app “Västerås utvecklas”. With the aid of AR, it makes it easier to get a feel for what is to be built..
By developing the app, we also wanted to challenge ourselves, and show that we are involved in the technological development and utilize modern technology solutions, for the residents’ best interests.
