As a part of Marie Curie training, I had the opportunity to be part of “Designing Interactions” at the Mobile Experience Lab (director Professor Federico Casalegno), Comparative Media Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. We collaborated with Marriott Hotels to explore how digital technologies can be integrated into the physical space of the hotel lobby in order to transform the hotel and city experience .

Our team developed a design concept and a prototype for a service integrating a mobile app, a website, and a tangible interface as an engaging way of visualizing information about the cultural environment of the city. The underlying idea of our design was to transform the lobby space into an epicenter of social energy that integrates the hotel with the surrounding cultural community of the city of Boston.
