Feemium Cities


Could we rethink, reimagine and redesign past and future cities from a property-free basis?

Type of project
  • Systemic changes

Property is a key aspect of our society. Cities bind their citizens by different means, willing to preserve static ways of belonging, turning themselves into not much more than property-clusters to which their inhabitants are tied to by debt. So the question naturally arise: do we need to own in order to be part of society?
Sharing Economy, servification of industries... are all products of a hyperconnected world, in which the value of using, instead of owning, has drastically change the way we relate to today’s cities.
If homes were an international service, similar to how our music library has transformed into a Spotify name and password, how would cities look? How would they combine a global definition together with local conditions of specific geographical areas, such as climate, culture...? Could we empower individual sovereignty of citizens through designing new common living standards, related not only in the ways of using, but also in the economical bounds attached to them?
