Omphalos – Repurposing The High Street
Omphalos was created as part of my honours project this year, it is a public sector organisation that would opperate as part of the Scottish government in an attempt to revive and repurpose under developed high streets and town centers around the country. With the aid of local councils and the participation of communities, Omphalos would arrange live events that utilise technologies and systems found within smart cities in order to explore how they could benefit and alter the traditional high street that we know today. In addition to this, successful events will also have the opportunity to be funded via growd funding campaigns allowing the residents of the local area to decide whether or not this is something they would like to see in their own town.
