AR is an important part of urban life, being a part of banking, culture, entertaining and educational spheres. Citizens have an opportunity to use the environment (or its absence) in a new way and it’s very likely that infrastructure will begin to adapt to virtual reality very soon.

Why do we need augmented reality? How does it influence citizens’ habits and change their relationship with city? Will it become an integral part of daily life? All these questions will be discussed by the AR experts at the open discussion at Strelka.
