Project – Explore Regent Park
Explore Regent Park is a geolocative storytelling application that immerses the user in the history of Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood as they walk through the rapidly changing environment.
Explore Regent Park tracks the user’s device position throughout the park, passively educating the user on the neighbourhood’s history by presenting locationally relevant archival media. To preserve the user’s frame of reference, Designer Adam Owen devised
a unique content strategy and user journey, ensuring that the experience balances contextual relevancy and subject narrative order.
