We are currently collaborating with the Museu d’Historia de Barcelona in the project Refugi 307 – Moving through the Past. The goal of the project is to design an educational experience based on the World-as-Support interaction paradigm for one of the bomb shelters, namely Refugi 307, that were built during the Spanish Civil War in Barcelona. Our design approach was based on contextual inquiry, informant design and evaluation study with students of two local schools.
