Hi Croydon!

Croydon Council / Croydon, United Kingdom

‘Hi Croydon’ is a series of ‘interventions’ constructed of modular components that use technology to test and determine the future role of Croydon’s valuable spaces. Think Lego, where each modular placement is composed of and built around the character and topography of a specific location and composed of a different set of component parts.

More than smart furniture, the system can; take the role of green lungs by actively filtering air and engage with the community through interactive furniture that can be endlessly designed for events, dining, meeting spaces, work stations and play spaces. It can also interact directly with users delivering, live localised news, wayfinding and street notifications. Hi Croydon innovates the traditional street into a data driven, mobile, habitable, botanic garden that can harness public life through flexible and interactive technologies.
