Hi! Sorry for the late update, I have had some technical problems… but here we go!
Responding to Brief Part 02 – Dial ‘S’ for Sentient
The scenario that I am investigating, is based upon a proposal put forward by a group of Japanese politicians. They are suggesting to build a backup city for Tokyo, so that important functions could instantly be moved and get up and running during a case of emergency in the capital.
Through the concept of backup, I am trying to make comprehensible how essential human networks in urban Japanese environments work. I will also investigate if and how backups for these key functions could be conceived in case a disaster would disable the existing human network structures.
At the moment I am testing prototypes with expanding/contracting spaces adapting to human interaction. The aim is to create a principle for a multipliable and scalable component that reflects the structures of existing networks, and through layering of events over time adapts to create a spatial backup network.
