HEY!, Imaginable Guidelines is the first “city-design game” and everyone can play.
Through the crowd-sourced contributions of designers, engineers, experts, artists, citizens, a 101 card deck of the fundamental elements of city design is created. Players can then create their own design language and solutions, be informed actors or select cards for customized base design guidelines for their community. As a co-created guideline for Istanbul from Istanbul’s community of practical and experiential city intelligences, HEY! provides fundamental know-how to all of Istanbul’s citizen communities and awareness of possibilities of change. Bring out the empowered city-designer in you and, with your community, collectively create your public realm environment to be livable, sharable, walkable, feasible, doable and most importantly lovable.
