“Tabula Rasa in Egocity” by The Why Factory and Berlage Institute

  1. 1. PLUS523 June 2012 The Why Factory / Berlage Institute“Tabula Rasa in Egocity”by The Why Factoryand Berlage Institute,completes the Anarcity vision A trial in seven actspresented on Abitare. A narCity, a research studio run city in a state of anarchy. The project by Winy Maas and The Why develops thematically and through time steps. Factory at the Berlage Institute, The second is Ego City in tabula rasa, explores relationships between urban an urban structure parallel to the one planning and anarchic thinking by creating of anarchic Paris. People who fail to adapt and testing a series of models and case to the new urban situation move 100 km studies, produced in the space of a year out and build separate living units, each by a student team and teachers Winy Maas, with an “engine” able to satisfy an Felix Madrazo, Daliana Suryawinata, Jeroen individual’s food and energy requirements. Zuidgeest and Adrien Ravon. The research has two interrelated stages. The Ego City case study is the outcome The first, “Paris 20__”, which Abitare 523” of the “Anarchy” project developed examines in detail, is a simulation of a by The Why Factory at TU Delft fictitious urban landscape grounded in and led by Winy Maas with Felix Madrazo accurate data that uses the TV series format and Ania Molenda.  The Ego City project to build the Paris 20__ scenario of a future is by Dalia Zakaite. 523 1
  2. 2. STEP 1Living alone, my Anarchist needs noeffort in producing vital resources.All his attention may be concentratedon safety issues and his favouriteways of spending time. 523 2
  3. 3. 4m2 = 4 chicken STEP 2 poultry 1.5 kg/week eggs 7/week Some of inhabitants of the city may OR desire to lead a common household. By joining several engines to one 4m = 8 accumulators 2energy storage 160 kWh housing unit, separate elements of does not need to be duplicated. Therefore some extra space is gained. This space can be used for growing animals, more diverse plants, storing or producing energy, etc. The more engines are put together, the more diverse these possibilities are. 4m2 = 4 chicken poultry 1.5 kg/week eggs 7/week + 4m2 = 1 goat milk 12 l/week OR 8m2 = 1 pig pork 90 kg/12 weeks 523 3
  4. 4. STEP 3Dom-Ino housing unit is analysedin ways of personalizing andjoining them. Although thecombinations are numerous, theyare still restricted. Here I notice,that really anarchic building shouldnot have any restrictions on it’ssize, architecture and spatialcharacter. Further improvementsof the engine are made toovercome this and to provide theengine with structural capabilities. 523 4
  5. 5. Therefore the engine is upgradedand magnetic impulse generatoris implemented. It generatemagnetic fields of preferedstrength and size. These fieldsinteract by pushing and attractingeach other and so sustainsprefered distance between thehouses as well as prefered densityof the area. This feature alowsDom-Ino to be replacedand the engine to be attachedto any kind of architecture. 523 5
  6. 6. STEP 4Once every inhabitant is ableto decide the density of hisneighbourhood, the viewof the city changes.If the population of this city wouldhave same preferences asAmerican society (accordingto Community Preference Surveyof 2011, USA), the city would bedispersed and single housingwould prevail. Working area of the magnetic field, Personal area, representing densities Results of generated by the engine of different living environments Comunity Preference Survey, 2011 523 6
  7. 7. STEP 5Magnetic field is strong enough to 1 000 populationkeep higher engines floating above. 536 925 built area (ground level)This feature is exploated once there 21 477 000 built volumeis not enough space on the ground. 1 860 density 3 000 population 542 325 built area(ground level) 40 567 666 built volume 5 531 density 7 000 population 865 321 built area (ground level) 78 748 998 built volume 8 089 density 10 000 population 1 075 268 built area (ground level) 107 385 000 built volume 9 300 density 523 7
  8. 8. STEP 6There is nothing to keep theinhabitants living in one place.They are free to move wherethe view is better, the air is morefresh, the company is morefriendly, or anywhere else. 523 8
  9. 9. STEP 7One million city is unpredictablydispersed in all territory, creatingareas of hyper connectivity,promoted by unlimitedmovement between the housingunits. Moreover none of the unitsis attached to it’s location – it isalways free to move, to start tolive collectively or to divorce,to communicate or to retreatto loneliness.The city is connected, voluntary,anonymous and individualas internet itself. The Ego City case study is the outcome of the “Anarchy” project developed by The Why Factory at TU Delft and led by Winy Maas with Felix Madrazo and Ania Molenda.   The Ego City project is by Dalia Zakaite. 523 9
