World building designates an inclusive, deeply collaborative and iterative process that combines rigorous research with the evocative narrative. It’s a narrative practice in which the deep understanding of a world precedes the telling of a story. The richly detailed world becomes a container for narrative, producing stories that emerge logically and organically from its well-designed core.
The Street Corner: Future Cities
During our workshop, we will take a Scandinavian street corner as our laboratory to investigate the Future of Cities. Our objective is to understand the present ideas that drive our choices, and how those choices shape the future. We are set to investigate how the conditions in the present will manifest in the next decades. We will consider the current political climate, migratory populations, environmental conditions and lifestyle to address themes as climate change, war, new agriculture, wellness, autonomous vehicles, biology, tourism, media industries, education, and sustainability.
We will world build the future projection of our present through our innovative art-science practice to develop new narratives that can seed a different future we could see emerging and developing in the Street Corners of Future Cities.
