Prototype City

Explore the city of the future, where innovations beyond your wildest dreams are brought to life before your eyes.

Prototype City showcases a range of interactive exhibitions and experiences in various locations around the city – a real life ‘choose your own adventure,’ if you will! Many of the exhibitions are located at one of our four MKW Hubs, but there are others dotted around in key outdoor areas. You can see the full details by checking the event pages below.

During MKW21 you can download a handy walking map that connects our four hubs and Prototype City activities to you. Plus, this year we have a range of walking tours, some hosted and some self-guided. So get on the front foot and explore some lesser-known ways that our city is staying at the cutting-edge of technology.

From augmented reality apps that help you see our city through a new lens, to discovering ways we can all be more water-wise, Prototype City has a range of experiences guaranteed to spark your imagination.
