SuperBarrio is a video game designed to gather citizens’ opinion about public space design and programme. It allows citizens to visualize, navigate and interact with their neighbourhood that is represented as a detailed three dimensional model.

Data about the solutions proposed by citizens are collected in a repository and statistics about their preferences can be created..
