Metvibee—creating sustainable cities of the future with extended reality

Create and build vibrant and sustainable cities of the future with interactive AR today.

Making urban design more democratic, more participatory, more collaborative.
Designing better sustainable cities together,
with Metvibee.

Easy to use

Collaborate with your fellow teammates on urban design projects easily, without technical hassle, powered by AR and VR.

Easy to draw

Versatile creation tools, including pen and image upload. Everything is geolocated and can be easily shared through extended realities.

Easy to collaborate

See your colleagues' contributions real time. Discover other projects and join in the collaboration.


Urban design apps are often complicated and designed by experts. Key stakeholders in your project need a simple interface to participate in the design.

Share your 3D model to Metvibee and invite people to draw on it! We keep Metvibee as simple as possible. Anyone can use it.


Place-based visual design apps that focus on collaboration are rare. To gain valuable and critical insights for your urban development project, you need a place-based tool to involve key stakeholders.

Metvibee is a co-creation platform and you can see your colleagues’ real time contributions.


Urban design apps don’t often prioritize easy sharing. You want to involve diverse stakeholders and end users for better collaboration and insights.

In Metvibee, you can quickly share your project by QR code/shortlink to others to see and edit together. You can post the QR code on the project site too!

Why participatory urban design?

Urban development projects often fail to consider the perspectives and insights of the people who use them. As a result, we often build cities and neighborhoods that don’t work for residents and businesses in local communities. We uncannily create unsustainable and unequal cities that don’t benefit our society, environment and economy. We need to do better than “we don’t know if it works until we build it”.

When we involve citizens and stakeholders in the design process, we build vibrant neighborhoods that benefit everyone.

Metvibee helps property developers and municipalities design projects that work for key stakeholders. With our interactive Augmented Reality platform, you can easily invite stakeholders and end users in your project to design together and obtain critical insights.

Participatory design is also crucial in creating fair and just cities for everyone. By designing together with project stakeholders, you ensure spaces and resources are designed for diverse individuals and communities. A fair and equitable urban design means better life satisfaction, better social cohesion, and a more resilient economy.

By allowing key stakeholders to actively participate in the design process, Metvibee helps you build better, vibrant and sustainable cities that attracts people and wealth. Through our visual collaborative design process, you can save social and economic costs arising from a failed design.

Arnsteins ladder of participation

Degrees of participation

Sherry Arnstein proposed the ladder of public participation in 1969. As the end users of urban development projects, citizen and stakeholder participation means better designs for your project, and less waste of money arising from design failures.

Metvibee addresses the following sustainable development goals (SDGs):

Global Goal 10 - Reduced Inequalities

Reduced inequalities

By encouraging citizen participation in urban projects, cities can be built in a more equitable way that includes people of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

Global Goal 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities

Sustainable cities and communities

Extended reality design has the potential to make participatory process more immersive and effective in creating cities and communities that work for everyone.
