What does the Future City look like? What are the ‘Future City Products’ that will characterise it? These are precisely the questions that the interventions The Future City is Wide by The Why Factory, Copy Paste, a bad ass guide for becoming a Starchitect, (W)ego, a 9 meter high, habitable installation and the workshop Ici Eindhoven sought to answer.
The interventions frame and highlight several principles integral to the Future City:
The Future City is Wide
How much can we dream for the future city? (What are the limits of possibility in the future city?)
The Future City has Memories
How can we use the architecture of the present to make better architecture in the future?
The Future City is Flexible
How can we negotiate our own architectures of desire?
