Neometabolism

A set of new anabolic processes that support the metabolism of the XXI-century-metropolis.

Type of project
  • New areas of operation

The digital era has deeply infiltrated the social infrastructure of the city and has, de facto, changed the way and scale in which it works. As a result, the old metabolism of the city has crystallized, and it is today unable to initiate processes of growth, retraction, and regeneration. This mineral metabolism does not support the XXI-century-utopia. Then, if we understand that the physical reality of the metropolis no longer corresponds with its activities and that future changes in the city can project and proliferate over the landscape in an unpredicted colossal scale, it becomes prudent to seize this extraordinary opportunity to image new logics and operations in scenarios yet unprecedented. There are no longer individual entities as city or landscape, but only grounds and figures. Therefore, a set of new anabolic processes that realize the potentials of new form, flora, and function to shape the environment of such rapidly transforming urban culture are in order!
