The Civic Exchange is a public information installation concept for people who live, work or visit Lower Manhattan. It explores possibilities for the dissemination and exchange of local information and creates a civic space that fosters social interaction. The installation features multiple interactive screens for different purposes: a multi-user interactive map table, place-based news, events, alerts and private exchanges. A public announcement system displays local information on a large LED display. The Civic Exchange would also serve as a warning system in emergencies. A roof with solar panels provides partial and back-up power as well as shelter from the sun and rain. Integrated seating invites people to gather and interact.
