Augmenting HeritageToronto

Team: Azza Osman, Keith Cheng

One walking around Toronto is likely to encounter a HeritageToronto plaque. Launched as a project in 1969, the over 900+ plaques across the city document the rich and diverse histories of the city, inviting those walking by to engage with these often forgotten histories. Despite the goals of the project, its current form leaves many of these histories forgotten; often placed in obscure or high traffic pedestrian areas, the text-heavy plaques are sparingly engaged with by those walking by. This project intervenes by using 3D modelling and UX design to explore alternative possibilities for this project, including how new technologies like AR and Apple Watches can help support deeper engagement with the city's history.
