After being plunge in an archipelago of poetical islands, spectators are invited to build virtual cities. For that, they have a « seed launcher ». Each launch will make an house grow. The growing houses follows some urbanistic rules, they adapts to their environnement: cities in the cloud, uprooted cities, cities on stilts, flying cities… Spectators creates empty cities, without inhabitants, giving a large place to imagine what happens inside these houses. These cities take on a life of their own, with or without the interactions of users, like living organisms… The names of these cities are inspired by forgotten or immersed cities: Xanadu, Canope, Kerma, Kitej… The work consists of creating huge cities, for wandering and loose yourself. To provoque a reflexion on the topics of urbanism, architecture, and their influence on our lifestyles. And giving life to inanimate things...

While successful examples of putting AR on smart glasses to use are plenty, it is by far not clear, what space of opportunity the new aesthetics have, nor is it clear which design principles drive satisficing user experience.
