Architecture of Psychosis


Desperate answers to the planet collapse

Architecture of Psychosis


Desperate answers to the planet collapse
Do you also feel it? An apocalypse is about to come any day now! An Architecture of Psychosis is just a palliative for the planet collapse.

  • Next alliances

Planet-scale vectors driving the socioeconomic system we live in, seem to get to collide soon. Climate change has become a phenomena more perceivable in the humans' psycho-sphere than in the environment. The economic crisis, now a status quo, left a sense of precarity and instability. The new automated technologies are fomenting a fear for machines based on the incapability of fully comprehend them. A new tension from the recent threats of a global terrorist war, triggered by unstable leaders, is spreading.
Anxiety and fear brought humanity to live in an endless present. Unable to imagine the future, impotent humans show irrational behaviors that are erasing centuries of Humanism, going back to a Medieval relationship with the unknown, where magic, religion and nature keep humans in check.
One of the outputs pf this psychosis is series of architectures aimed to protect from the planet collapse: from underground bunkers to bombproof cryostasis chamber. How does it look like?
