Walk around in a city made of paper
SABO (The Swedish Association of Public Housing Companies) wanted to be a part of the conversation about the Swedish housing crisis. Together we created a hand made and populated i houses from different time periods with desperate tweets from people calling out for a place to stay. To make it accessible for people around the country we created an interactive experience by capturing the city and making it in to a street view. To be able to capture spherical images, we built a street view robot that could rotate 360 degrees up and down by a push of a button and placed a high end camera that captured ultra high resolution images. The WebGL-experience was built with ThreeJS.
Taking inspiration from the classic street view experience from Google Maps - from pegman, the mini map to the cursor on the road - we tweaked it and made it a bit more joyful to fit the mood of the city.
