Entry #21

Draw your future into the sky

Kazuki Futatsuhashi

A system that broadly solicits ideas for improving Ginza from visitors to Sony Park. Using a smartphone app, visitors take photographs of nearby places and annotate them with their ideas to improve the neighborhood. The photos are exhibited on digital displays installed within the Park, and also on billboards around the city — replacing ads that had been removed via the Subtract Billboard (Phase 1 Competition entry) system.
