taking the idea of open-source communities becoming visible and contributing to the large scale material culture a little further:

if we can create objects, movies and small scale instalations entirely based on microdonations, would it be possible to seriously think of crowd-financed buildings?  distributed investments oriented towards community goals?

maybe there is already a totaly new economy enabling architecture and therefore completely new audience… or the other way around.

if architecture mirrors existing power structures and creates spatial order representing socio-political hierarchies, it’s worth investigating how could it look like and how would it be made in these new circumstances.

this is a first sketch for a large hub in berlin, based on noInput sketches and fusion series shapes. refering to Woods’s “berlin free zone” project, it proposes diverse, yet indetermined spaces requiring creative effort in order to be inhabited. one cannot move in with old furniture:)

more photos on flickr. this is a beginning of a series. comming soon.

mistakes in communication, compression glitches and all sorts of digital errors might be regarded as failures,

but looked upon carefully they unfold generative and imaginary potential.

inspired by Tsuyoshi Kusano, Dali’s late experiments [Tuna Fishing] and Marko Ciciliani’s music.

study of the behavior of an imaginary ecosystem: schelling’s model leaving trace[drawing map]. brightness value triggers expansion [agent system]. it’s a study of system dynamics similar to Batty[2007]. i just wouldn’t search for relevance of such simulations in their measurable properties. instead they are great to feed planners imagination and/or understanding.

this animation is a part of investigation of systems behavior, hopefully leading towards creative and direct urbanism.
