ESR Androniki Pappa contributes to City Layers project

Published on 15-01-2024

Androniki Pappa has been developing research on a taxonomy of urban commons, particularly focusing on collaborative methods for engaging citizens/residents to assess their imminent environments. In that context, she has been contributing to the City Layers mapping platform, a means to collect information on how citizens perceive public spaces in their urban surroundings in a playful way. City Layers is designed as a mobile app that is currently being updated after a pilot application in schools in Vienna. Results from this test inform Androniki’s PhD research and help update the City Layers’ participatory mapping parameters and roadmap. The work CITY LAYERS: from individual observations to collective Knowledge, part of the City Layers team was presented at the Responsive Cities conference, which took place in November 2023, in Barcelona.
