CityWall is a collaborative social space in Helsinki, Finland.

The CityWall is a large mutli-touch display installed in a central location in Helsinki which acts as a collaborative and playful interface for the everchanging media landscape of the city.

The content displayed on the CityWall is periodically organized into themes or events that are currently taking place in the city such as festivals, carnivals or sports events.

The CityWall is designed to support the navigation of media, specifically annotated photos and videos which are continuously gathered in realtime from public sources such as Flickr and YouTube.

CityWall is one of the first real world applications for large format multi-touch technology. The collaborative and site-specific aspects of CityWall make it a useful tool which becomes part of the social fabric, rather than a clunky gimick... like Microsoft Surface.
