my starting assumption

In the MapTribe project I started from the assumption that every person has a mental representation of the city, that this representation may quite different from other people’s conceptions and that the same representation may be quite different from reality. (Milgram)

I believe to have defined the need that justify my project in the fact that people don’t live the place they inhabit with full understanding of its features or possibilities.

I believe technology can help people in forming their mental map of the city and in initiating a civic perception on the development and usage of the places they inhabit.

A possible research question may be phrased as: “People undergo their environment or they dominate it?”, “Do people have a clear idea of the place they inhabit?”, “Do people have an opinion on how they want their place to be?”, “Do they extend this idea to the public spaces?”
