Creative coding for all on a gigantic media-facade

ProgramaLaPlaza is an online programming festival for generative visuals and experiences created with code on a gigantic urban screen.

Using an online coding editor, any person on the planet can create content and visuals using one of the coding frameworks supported and showcase them on the Medialab Prado's media-facade.

For each public call, the projects were showcased for a period of 1 - 3 months around three times per week.
