UCL-CASA comes to the Building Centre, showcasing demonstrations of the digital city made physical through exhibits and discussion sessions. This will be based on the London Data Table, in which real-time London livedata is projected onto a table sculpted around the GLA boundary, and Pigeon Sim, which allows users to fly around a virtual London with a flap of their arms and a tilt of their body.

Workshops around these exhibits will delve into how these demonstrations were built, what they show and where the information and data comes from, discover how they can connect with local residents, and discuss how the next generation of CASA tools could benefit users. The demonstrations will run both days, with workshops as follow:

Saturday 12-12.45

Sunday 11-11.45
