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:)
