My idea is to write an experimental sci-fi novella departing from my recent essay for the journal of Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto that will be published later this month: http://www.cittadellarte.it/unidee/activity.html?id=113
Inspired by the NYTimes op-eds from the future (https://www.nytimes.com/spotlight/future-oped), I impersonated an urban planner in 2068 who, after the collapse of the bees, re-proposes 70s modular high-rises as an alternative to expand a new hand-pollinated agriculture. This speculative project leads to failure and the division of the world in two main economic systems. This urban planner ends up recycling these high-rises into gigantic beehives. Read the text here: https://annamoreno.stackstorage.com/s/CnIAApYmzoKccmb

The novella would expand this text while simultaneously combining the results of an eventual workshop with architects invited to re-propose 70s utopias into agricultural high-rises.

Q&A of my last lecture performance impersonating the former leader of the China Hand Pollination Project. Here, the slide shows some examples of "green" high-rises (fake).

Imaginary world-map depicting the division of the world onto two different economic systems named The Two Oceans Theory: North, Central and South America are veering towards what is widely known as Queen B, an economy led by Bitcoin-Blockchain technology and the sequestration of the remaining satellites; meanwhile, Europe and Asia have turned to a system reliant on the perishability of honey to promote commerce and trade culture within and among colonies, enhanced by AI and automation

Lecture performance impersonating the former leader of the China Hand Pollination Project. Here, Ettore Sottsass' "The Planet as a Festival" serves as an example of a gigantic maze built to enhance bee pollination between high-rise colonies.
