The growing and adapting city

stage3

Intra-city is a data responsive graphic that adapts to the estimated number of people inside the new Engineering, Technology and Design (ETD) building in real time. With a live data feed of AUT Wi-Fi logins, an estimate of how many people inside of the ETD building is made. When very few people are in the building the display only shows a single shop on a short stretch of road. As more people enter the building, the display slowly grows into the size of a suburb complete with homes, shops, community centres etc. From here, as the number of people inside increases the buildings are replaced by larger ones, slowly building up into a metropolis. This also works the other way with the Intra-city buildings becoming smaller as people leave.

Where you can find Intra-city

when completed, the project will be displayed in the AUT Engineering, Technology and Design building. On track for opening on the first day of semester two 2018, Intra-City will be running for the public on opening day. Displayed on a 6 X 4m LED screen in the St Paul Street entrance it’ll be hard to miss.
