Description: Mapping Memory Routes is a project initiated in 2016 by Dr Alda Terracciano to explore the heritage of everyday life in culturally diverse areas of London. For this iteration, she collaborated with Prof. Muki Haklay from the Geography department, and three external non-academic organisations, the Making Communities Work and Grow (MCWG), the Curve, and Pueblito Paisa community centres, to pilot a participatory design methodology, which will support the development of a wider research project on eliciting Community Memories for urban design and digital heritage. This presentation will focus on the realities of urban regeneration for local communities in London, discussing it in relation to intangible cultural heritage and sensorial urbanism as well as exploring the tools that technology and participatory methodologies can offer to citizens engaged in the process.
