Neighbourhood Islands


My project asks the question, what if? What if Vienna became a city of hyper local communities, how would they self organise and how would that change the environment. I used narratives a key way to explore the topic. The narrative looked at a future scenario. Vienna in 2050. How could a car-less Vienna, caused by the exponential rise of the price of oil, could trigger the decentralization of the cities infrastructure and the formation of neighbourhood islands, centered on the u-bahn stations. It imagined how these islands could organise themselves to deal with the particular issue of waste management. How would the streets change? How would the u bahn stations change? What would be the effects on the community?
