Some cities only brush themselves off and assert their design superiority for a week or two during special events. But many American cities deserve better treatment than some temporary installations and an influx of tourists. One possible solution is an app, which represents so many positive ways of engaging with locals to discover what works contextually in a city and what seems like a possibility for its future. Design firm R/GA‘s app for Design Week Portland, which took place in October, is a graceful example of this type of thinking. Dubbed Sited, it continues to receive submissions from design-oriented Portlanders in a wide range of possible categories, from typography to product design to architecture.
