Designing interactions with media façades bears several challenges. One of them arises when multiple users are interacting with a media façade simultaneously. In this work we report on our experiences designing a mobile multi-user interaction system with a high-resolution back projection media façade in a public space (see Figure 1, middle). We compare different methods to distribute temporary ownership of a media façade. We further describe our systematic design process of prototyping such a system at different scales. Our presented work covers preliminary insights into the design process of media façade interactions and it addresses domain specific challenges such as designing multi-user interactions from scratch.
