Amsterdam Hackable Metropolis

The idea of hackable city making is to involve citizens in the process of the development of the city. With Fietsersbond Herontwerp, citizens can actively participate in the process of redesigning the streets. This tool makes it possible for cyclists to hack the design proposals of the municipality and collaboratively create the best solutions for local traffic situations.
