NWS (New Work Space). Episode 1. Levi - The Suspended City
Портал Ideas Forward запускает своеобразный веб-сериал на тему городов и общества будущего. Новое общественное пространство (New Work Space) – вымышленный мир, где не существует никаких ограничений. Всего в проекте будет четыре эпизода, каждый из которых завершится выпуском книги. Задача участников первого эпизода – поразмышлять на тему «воздух» и предложить идеи по созданию «висячих городов». В основе проектов должно быть бережное отношение к природе.
One of the big problems we face today has to do with the overuse of the soil mass through the construction and the consequent increase of city boundaries. Man ceased to respect nature to just focus on the economic aspects through a rapid enrichment. Capitalism overlapped the most important values like preserving the planet through a culture of sustainability.
" Levi - The Suspended City " is the first of four episodes that we intend to build on the concept of buildings cities. The optimization of the city in the building for the benefit of nature and the environment. Based on the theme of the 4 elements , we wish to approach the man of nature and explore the concept of buildings cities. In this episode we explore the " AIR ".
We want to think of new dynamics of trade relationship between housing and services , making a reflection of the city inside the building and bridging the needs of contemporary societies. We seek dynamic new movement, integration and relationship between all parties, adapting the building to current and future requirements.
Over the years we have had several successful examples of reinterpretation of the building as an object of use by man. Are paradigmatic cases that the Housing Unit of Marseille of Le Corbusier and the Copan building of Oscar Neymeirer, where the building takes the place of the town, though on a smaller scale.
So we wanted to go further and imagine that the building can take the place of the city. To do this you must also rethink how we organize ourselves in society. This exercise aims however rethink cities and societies of the future.
