About the studio:
There is an increased “rate of change” occurring (climatic, environmental, technological, physiological, political). Much about how we as humans will live among each other, within our environments, and among other species can best be described as a large unknown. In proposing new types of community gardens and community centers, this studio explored the development of specific relationships, including those related to cultural and technological pressures in synthetic biology, artificial intelligence, and climate manipulation, that provide opportunities for novel architectural shapes and spatial organizations.
About the project:
The purpose of the park is to enhance the methods of human communication and dramatically increase park usage. It achieves higher flexibility by utilizing augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI). The park is the intelligence itself. It can make decisions and respond to people’s wants. Sensors perceive not only human biological features and psychological reactions, but also social media, to find out visitors’ living patterns. The AI then analyzes their data library to merge their interests into something that they have not seen before.
