Why using timelapse for Lively Cities ?
To carry out a timelapse there are 2 steps:
From that you can accelerate a scene, e.g. one entire day can runs in 5 minutes, or one year in 120 seconds!
Observe the space, understand it, analyse it in order to propose on this space what's suit the best to potential users. Thanks to timelapse, we can see how the space live, how people get around, where they stay and where they don't go at all. From these information, we have an idea about we can implement on the space, where and why?
Here an example with the "Jardin de la Maison de la Culture":
An other view:
This space is an empty space, misused, people just cross it, or go on the low wall watching the view, spend some time, chill out. In that case, it may be relevant to test: tables, chairs, animations, events, to answer users' needs. Lively Cities' team work on it. Soon we'll see what's will be proposed on the space and how people will react.
Timelapse isn't an end in itself, it needs to be associated to other analysis tools, to understand the space globallly.
These timelapses are a reference point, during tests other observations will be settled. We'll be able to monitor tests in terms of population (does it increase?) and use of the space.
