Join the American start-up ‘Cher’ in testing their Airbnb-inspired app for sharing the city.
Join the American start-up ‘Cher’ in testing their Airbnb-inspired app for sharing the city. The American start-up, ‘Cher’ (a digital platform that allows users to offer and reserve objects by the minute) and the International Federation of Housing Planning are looking at future ways of sharing the city. Airbnb is one the main inspirations and Copenhagen is the first European test-city.
Through workshops, walking tours, and interviews, the platform-building process amasses a rich taxonomy of a city’s object landscape and instigates conversations around social exchange and material culture. Initially developed for Copenhagen-a place with a storied culture of coziness and a population fluent in design- Cher will develop into a global platform after its launch at the 2016 Oslo Architecture Triennale, responding to the quirks, specificities, and needs of different urban populations.
