Since this is an all-in-one app, the content is immediately accessible regardless of the network coverage of your location or your cell phone’s data roaming contract . I also tested the experience from home, and loved to be able to travel from one place to another and keep learning new things on my city.
The concept of Archistoire is to reveal through a smartphone app the stories of our natural and built landscapes. Beyond the description of what constitutes our heritage, the main purpose is to explain to the general public how our life environments are created.
The authenticity and quality of the content provided by the Archistoire label are based on CAUEs’ 40 years of expertise in the topics covered. The CAUEs are unique tools at the service of the territories, making it possible to offer a cross-fertilized view of the challenges adressed through architecture, urban planning, landscapes and the environment.
Archistoire is the embodiment of the CAUEs’ innovation policy through the use of digital tools to raise awareness on these subjects.

It’s fantastic to get this 360° vision of a city ! Looking for the blinking hotspots feels like a treasure hunt. It took me a while to realize that the panoramas I was seeing weren’t actually taken by my phone’s camera : the illusion is seamless and the experience highly immersive !
I really enjoy walking through cities but usually don’t like guided tours. This app was really great to stroll around at my own pace and discover fun facts as I pleased.
Finally an app that offers more than a traditional leaflet or GPS guide ! I love how you get immersed in your environment and can time-travel. I learned so much all while having fun !
Tirelessly working on innovative user experiences joining the real and the digital world, the makers of archistoire unite their skills, ranging from innovation strategies to museography and user experience to interaction design.
To create the original content of the Archistoire apps, we rely on the unique expertise of CAUEs.
