Using the concept of disruptive technologies, we embed “infrastructure design” in urban and rural space to create a new “networked scenario”; helping cities and countryside to accelerate its flowability, meanwhile, solve related social crises and challenges. We take two parallel scenarios, city and village, and develop the map graphs of two main flows: food and work production. Through these mappings, we analyse how these flows are structured and how they network with other physical and digital flows, while we create a hyper-architecture to narrative many vivid stories.
Issues Between Urban and Rural Area
We can establish an organization to REDUCE THE INTERMEDIATE LINKS AND RECONNECT the urban area to the rural area. Besides, we can not only BREAK THE BORDER between urban and country, but also can promote the development of both sides.
- Form/ Fundamental Function
We analysed the fundamental functions of organic agriculture in cities and villages and used it as the basic unit of this hyper-architecture.
- Additional Function
We have created several new spaces as space carriers for new communication methods between urban and rural areas.
- Brand-new Social Relationship
Our organization breaks the border between cities and countries and integrate them in a hyper-architecture. Besides, we create a new social relationship between urban and rural areas based on organic agriculture.
- The Story of Social Relationship
Rural Area Scenario
They focus on the basic functions of organic agriculture. Organic food are produced in the lab and then transported and sorted in other places.
Countries have the same resource, such as food, logistics and infrastructure as the cities have.
Our organization set up a design department in the rural area and improve the quality of food products, while we establish the weekend farming area.
Farmers and citizens all enjoy the weekend marketplace. They can communicate face-to-face and share food.
Urban Area Scenario
They pay more attention on food reprocessing and develop the commerce which related to organic food. Food are distributed to central kitchen, restaurant, supermarket and home.
Our organization set up several self-pickup centres for citizens getting food products by themselves.
Residents share takeout in the unique space and our organization collect the rubbish from takeout. In addition, citizens can enjoy the weekend marketplace and weekend picnic nearby restaurant and central kitchen.
All garbage will be delivered to the recycling center, and reprocessed into new products or degraded into feed.
