alentours (meaning surroundings in French) is an application aiming to encourage discovering a city and its history through free strolling.
It is based on the conception of the city as a physical space, filled with history and opportunities, to be discovered and invested.
This application and interface were founded on the following questions:
• is it possible to get rid of notions like efficency and productivity when it comes to digital products?
• how can we encourage strolling, curiosity and sideway steps?
• how to create a digital tool while encouraging disconnection?
• how can digital can be used to discover a city and its heritage?
alentours also includes a "details" system, which allows the user to get more information on various architectural, historical, visual, etc. elements, according to their settings.
