Walls looking for colors, colors looking for walls! Virtual meeting house seeks financement!


The project

La Graffiterie is a virtual meeting place between inhabitants possessing grey walls and inhabitants who want to color them. 







It's aim is to give anyone the possibility to color the neighbourhood walls, to meet neighbours for a better life atmosphere. 









La Graffiterie has a very simple structure : two columns for two type of profiles. Once our profile is created, we look to the other column's people to launch a collaboration. 










a) Post a picture of your wall, followed by a brief text explaining the type of visual you look for, and a prefered color range. 


b) Find in the opposite column visuals that fits your attempts, and ask them for a photomontage.


c) Meet the person if you liked the photomontage .








a) Look into the grey wall column for spaces that you'd like to color. Print the picture and draw what you imagine would be great on it, according to the owners' descrptions. 


b) Post the photomontage on the profile of the wall.


c) Meet the person if the photomontage is accepted.








Collaboration is made possible using photomontage as a visual support for discussion.  They show a drawing in the context of the wall.





The internet platform is designed to enable confidence between users through a clear meeting process, like the couchsurfing network which allows you to sleep in stranger's couch for one night. 





Graffiteurs will be able to fund projects they like, to share them, vote for they favorite. We could also imagine exchanges between regions of the world, as an alternative touristic experience.




We want to show that everyone is capable of spectaculary things, and demonstrate it by making it possible. The Graffiterie is a fonctional tool willing to repare forgotten urban areas, to transform habitation zone into life places.









Guiding a friend who comes for lunch thanks to the color of the environing buildings. Imagine finding yourself face to face with a sculpted creature coming out of an habitation,  turn round and see this twisted dragon, big as a building wind around it. Imagine an permanent exhibition always renewed at a city scale. 








La mission est couleur. Nous procéderons méthodiquement, par étapes.


Why fund it?

In order to finance the developpement of a functional website as soon as possible, the  technical specification list is cut into parts. The parts are as many steps to a finished website and needs to be flexible to further modifications.




Step 01 : Main page and profile pages = 1000€


Header (fixed) :

Tittle, catch phrase, connexion menu (identifications, link to register page) and five buttons : "How does it works?", ' What is it?" , "Tools", "Color mission" and "Realisations".


Main page :

Two columns : " Wall seeks colors" and "Color seeks wall". Each columns is constituted with images of walls in a side and drawings in the other side. Images inside a column are placed in a random order. Each image is a link to the autor's profile.


Wall profile:

Column 1 : Picture of the person, informations. Text telling what kind of color/shape the person is wanting to have on it. Picture of the wall (maximum two per wall). Column 2 : All the summited photomontages for this wall with the link of the autors' profiles. All the realisations are added by the wall's profile. 


Graffiteur's profile : 

Column 1 : Picture of the person, informations, galerie. Images from the galerie display chronologically, but the first one is always the picture thats represent the profile on the main page. Column 2 : All the photomontages and realisations done by this profile with the link to the profiles that cooperated.

Uploading images form :

-The kind of image : profile picture, picture of the real person, grey wall, photomontage, realisation. Autors : profiles that did it.
