The Research and Co-creation Model for Urban Interaction Design and Practices

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10912)


The city is the basis of people’s life, carrying the behavior and interaction of residents every day. With the rapid development of information interaction technology, the city is paying more and more attention to Human-oriented and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). The Smart City is a new city form developed in such a new technology environment. This paper focuses on applying the methods of HCI to the construction of smart city. We analyze related cases and create an element model of Urban IxD, and then get the operation framework of urban innovation. After that, the operation framework is applied to co-creation workshop. Finally, based on stakeholder discussion, the models of city co-creation are built. These models and frameworks are intended as a common design model to help builders to discover design opportunities and create appropriate solutions for urban innovation.
