U.A.U. unitary applied urbanism

he U.A.U. workshop has the aim to recode the augmented reality as a tool for urban communication and cultural subversion. The workshop pulls the augmented reality out from the marketing silly gimmicks and it re-tunes that technology as an instrument for the appropriation of the city space, of the skyline of the city. The workshop wants to twist the opinion of the participants towards augmented reality and delivery to them the power to do with AR what they want in the places where graffitism is prohibited.
