Pigeon Sim at Bloomsbury

Last weekend (20th and 21st October) CASA teamed up with local businesses and residents to help stage the Bloomsbury festival in WC1. 

The festival was a weekend long event, with free music, events and stalls across the capital. CASA set up shop in the Building Centre on Store street, demonstrating to the public the delights of Pigeon Sim – where visitors can fly around London; the London data table  - where a range of data about our city is projected onto a London shaped table; and Roving eye – an interactive simulation which encourages users to think creatively about evacuation design.

The event was visited by hundreds of people over the course of the weekend and the CASA stall was no exception – popular with children aged as young as three, and many, many visitors who were much older.

With thanks to The Building Centre, The Bloomsbury Festival and UCL Public Engagement. This work is funded by a UCL Beacon Bursary.
