Professor George Thrush’s mobile app startup, Building Conversation, will be joining forces with the Boston architecture firm CBT at HUBweek, a creative festival celebrating innovation at the intersection of art, science, and technology. They will implement their augmented reality mobile application to allows visitors on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to view examples of higher density housing from the vantage point of the Greenway. This will allow members of the general public to see exactly what full scale and geolocated design proposals will look like against the real backdrop of the city.
HUB week, founded by The Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT and Mass General Hospital, runs from September 25 through October 1.
