Space Hackers is an interface design in which all citizens can be involved with a ‘space hacker’ identity to transform the closed areas of the city to access open space. Space Hackers aims to organize to be creating temporary open public spaces on closed spaces of the city by spatial interactive events which are called ‘hack’. Hack means to transform the actual function of anything into something new. In other words, an existing space is used in a way not previously used for a while by somebody who hasn’t used it before. User interactive events that use new media as a tool are designed to make possible that. Spaces in which physical and virtual space momentarily intertwine with each other are created. Potential closed urban spaces where can be created hack event, spaces where some hack events are realized at that time and spaces where some events are planned to be done are pinned as different colored location points on the interactive city map which is existed on the interface. Space Hackers as the user of the interface can pin any location on the map as a potential hackspace, can participate in any hack project design process, can take notification of any hacking event which occurred at that moment, and also can discover videos of hack events that had already happened on pinned locations.
