The projects objective is to facilitate exploration of safe 24 hour city strategies, using advanced
technologies involving interactive, agent-based simulations of user-defined scenarios.
We plan to develop an extensive open source exploratory tool that will provide a basis for diverse, ongoing
work in relation to generating safer 24hour cities.
We propose a city generator and renewal package. This package consists of 3 parts:
1. A design proposal for an adaptive transformation process of the urban landscape which engages
in three scales; the large, medium and small and three operations; observation, speculation and
2. An identity and communication strategy for the proposal which aims in involving all citizens in the
process of transforming their city into a centre that is resilient to crime.
3. An interactive, agent-based simulator that utilizes an active tool box that speculates on various urban
strategies which responds to policies and generates user-defined scenarios.
