The design process comes to a stage that 6 groups meet and have a discuss that all can comment, bringing more clear idea for concept, prototyping, fabrication, and final output.
We are developing new strategy to understand and facilitate the production of the city in various aspects. Concepts include sharing energy, sharing working experience, adaptable structures that combines data and visual illusions, sunshine sterilization installation, etc.

Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Arduino can sense the environment by receiving input from a variety of sensors and can affect its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, and other actuators. The microcontroller on the board is programmed using the Arduino programming language (based onWiring) and the Arduino development environment (based on Processing). Arduino projects can be stand-alone or they can communicate with software running on a computer (e.g. Flash, Processing, MaxMSP).
