Crisis management and the suspension of politics in a crisis led EU.
Geo-political peripheries (PIIGS) and centralities, axes and other neoclassical ideas.
Coexistence of official and shadow economies.
Perceived and projected macro areas of production and development. Proximity and cross pollination of supply chains enforce superscalar micro economies.
Post crisis multi national identities based on shared debt and responsibilities
South Italy ECUMENOPOLIS
Beauty as a form of organization. The sea produces its own geopolitics : it frames territorial feedbacks.
Floating mirages, flat blue horizons are the post-crisis landscape.
Imaginary coastline and actual
perception of the territory, ecosystems.
Possible organization of a EU shared sovereignty. Cities and material flows : projecting the city with invisible hands.
The map allow people to name all the agents of a particular production line and to identify their spatial arrangements.
Dominations, topography, ideas, enemies. Envisioning new forms of coastal governance. Grids and contemporary self-organized imperialism. Beauty as an asset to multiply archipelagos.
Bare life, bare architecture. The Nu city plays the rules of blurred sovereignty: is partially an enclave and partially an exchanger.
The interplay between offshore sea freedom and on-shore extraterritoriality allows the city to become a political laboratory for experimental citizenship.
Nu City Grid
Nu City acts as a jurisdictional enclave while forming short-lived informational tax havens. Because its architecture depends on acts of evasion the territorial grid that constitutes its genome it’s algorithmically generated and adaptable over time. Nu City therefore is implemented as an act of voluntary self-colonialism, implementing exponentially the archetype of the grid to achieve maximum organization: from maximum freedom within a fixed grid to maximum flexibility of the grid and no flexibility within the grid
Nu City Infrastructure
Nu City is assembled from basic public infrastructure. Data Centres, free wi-fi connection, data clouds.
The structures are the result of merging the scale of the home with the purpose of infrastructure.
This are the only possible scale of intervention: providing gates, hotspots of quasi architecture.
