StreetLab – Documentary (4:59 min)

Laboratorial Design Research goes into the Field. In August 2009 we organized the StreetLab* in Berlin Neukölln. Now, the documentary is ready. Watch it!

* StreetLab Background:
In an experimental and human-centered design approach we seek to understand young people in urban context. To enable the research about authentic experiences in every day live, we “moved” the laboratory onto the street, thereby combining a semi controlled environment with a situation of permanent field research. Thus our aim was loosen the borders between laboratory and field research as an experimental hybrid approach.  In view of growing diversification and the multi ethnic urban society in the global context, we focus our research on heterogenic urban neighborhoods. We look on how to employ mobile Information-Communication-Technology to facilitate creativity, understanding and social/environmental sustainability.
