Digital Graffiti @ Schop Institute

Door open days


Schop Institute is run by architects from Oliver Chapman Architects and offers a programme of events to encourage participation in design, architecture and cities.

As part of Doors Open Days, visitors were invited to step into Schop Institute and take part in an experiment to map Edinburgh's ‘hidden treasures’. Visitors made a mark of a place or building that they considered to be one of Edinburgh’s old town hidden treasures on a large scale map of Edinburgh. A QR code web link was then printed on to a label which was displayed on the map at the chosen place. An ephemeral overlay of multiple personal stories applied to Edinburgh’s silent buildings emerged.
