    UpperTown. A real Gaming. There are 2 teams, Locals and visitors, who "fight" for the control of the best knowledge of the city. We create a map using API from google (which already sets "locals favourite places, best architectonic places, best restaurants...."), from there both teams will try to add those places for their team. A big list of suggestion will help the players to get know some different places. According to the player's location, the suggestion will recommend a place low swamped. Read Less

Creative project for "Complot Barcelona"
 
Briefing
Barcelona sees more than 8 millions of tourist each year. Mostly of them keep going to the same city areas, becaming too swamped zones. These situation not only affects to daily routine of citizens, but to the tourist incomes only stay concentrate in those areas.
The solution has to be digital native with a complete API's use, and if can be tranfered to other cities would be a plus
 
Idea
The fight between locals and tourists is really big. In one hand, the locals hate the so crowded tourist zone, where many times they can´t even walk, but in the other hand, many tourist hate that too, but also they wanted to see the "must see" places. In all the way, both groups miss a lot of good places which the would like to go. There are tons of examples, an awesome park away the city which the tourist don´t even know or a great indie concert hall in the crowded "barceloneta" where a local would love to go.
All those places are always advised by people, and that´s the key to avoid that problem.
 
How
UpperTown. A real Gaming. There are 2 teams, Locals and visitors, who "fight" for the control of the best knowledge of the city. We create a map using API from google (which already sets "locals favourite places, best architectonic places, best restaurants...."), from there both teams will try to add those places for their team. 
A big list of suggestion will help the players to get know some different places. According to the player's location, the suggestion will recommend a place low swamped.
 
Promoters
Airbnb has a the same problem. The most income for the accomodations are for the places near to swamped tourist areas, that 
discourage to hosts from not so central places. Uppertown helps the movement of the people to other areas, making bigger the airbnb community, with an iniative that grow the people relations, keeping on of it´s basis intact (people, places, love)
 
Barcelona as world mobile capital, would be on a heathy and friendly relationship with airbnb, being a example for other cities.
