POLYPOLIS: a social game
Nonprofit “School of Architecture for All” (SARCHA)
2011 | Research | Athens, London
The Polypolis game was initially conceived as a testing ground for SARCHA’s “CCR Athens Gerani 2010” pilot study. Four different groups of players strive to resolve complex issues related to the existing human/physical/natural resources within city blocks. As the current economic crisis hits a number of European countries, Polypolis social game takes a life on its own; it uses a playful manner to train/educate city inhabitants to cope ‘in common’ with issues that affect their life’s resources. Local adaptations have been developed for Athens, Rome and Thessaloniki. Polypolis Athens was the official participation of Greece at the London Festival of Architecture 2012.
