E-XQUIS:

Cities are vast cultural memory systems, but the inhabitants are not usually conscious of the infinite overlapping stories they are living out. The game becomes a urban mapping tool that creates a new awarenes of the game of everyday life and as well plays the role of proposing new rules for the invention and discussion of the urban cultural and physical fabric. The objective is to provide an alternative to the imagining and invention of the city by its users, through a platform that works only under creative interaction.

In this way, the direct users of a spatial reality are encouraged to engage the invention of their daily lifes and crossing such envisionings with distant and close participants of their cultures.

The project is both attending to the attempt of the ultimate "collective" invention, but nevertheless, intending to become an alternative serious memory system for mapping the urban cultural and social fabric and as well, to become a complementary tool for the recreation of urban planning.
