How do we get to know places? Tools and approaches shape our understanding of places and our ability to express that understanding. With an environmental design perspective, this website looks at ways to have a richer direct experience with the world we inhabit and then to analyze and communicate the resulting understanding. The project comes from an interest in how mobile digital tools could facilitate this process and then stimulate better environmental design solutions.
