Norm-critical visualisation – preliminary study
Research shows that stereotypical images of people are often used in visualisations of future urban environments. A new collaborative project is planned in an effort to study and change that.
With use of norm-critical methods, the aim is to contribute to creating an environment in which more people feel included in the development of the city. In time, the hope is to create cities where more people can feel at home.
The project has been granted financing with SEK 300,000 by Sweden's innovation authority VINNOVA within the initiative Diversity Lab - Norm-Critical Innovation 2015.
The preliminary study was possible thanks to the participation of the City of Gothenburg's Urban Planning Office, Älvstranden Utveckling, Skanska, visualisation companies Tomorrow and Industriromantik, White architectural agency and Monica Billger, Professor of Visualisation at Chalmers and Beata Stahre Wästberg, post-doctoral scholar of visualisation at the University of Gothenburg.
