Translating high quality research specific to better design and building practice

How we got here

1 - Staring as a trial to test the top two key aspects of Livibility in the community the initial focus was on

  • Outdoor spaces and buildings
  • Community support and health services

2 - We were joined by 2 passionate cities Tweed Heads and Wollongong who jumped onboard with us forming out first pilot

3 - Launching the initial minimal viable product to test the idea so the first iteration of our iPad app. Here we started capturing information directly from community members about the environment soundings.

4 - Ramping up the feedback we ran a series of “Walk and Talks” in our pilot cities with key members of our elderly community to collect the why behind the data they were providing. This opened up key insights and perceptions about how they viewed the built environment they moved within.

5 - Our maps started filling with valuable details for community’s perspectives of the Tweed Heads and Wollongong built environment.

6 - To reach more of our communities we launched the Android and iPhone versions to step up data collection.

7 - Having taken the key findings of the pilot waves we are at the exiting point to re-invented Liviablity to scale with direct connections into our Australian Councils, and Universities. Imaging the power of community planning with millions of Australians able to report gaps and issues which need attention. Picture how much we could learn about the real robustness of the products we are choosing for our public spaces. How much more could we improve all Australian lives with amazing accessible spaces.
