Dutch Design Week 2017 | The Future City is Flexible by The Why Factory and MVRDV
By FEDERICA LUSIARDI - October 27, 2017
During the the current edition of the Dutch Design Week, The Why Factory and MVRDV, present the project “The Future City is Flexible | (W)ego“.
Based on the hypothesis of maximum density achievement and maximum desire fulfillment, the (W)ego installation “The Future City is Flexible”, explores the potentials of desire-based design processes capable of introducing the users’ wishes in the construction of housing and the city.
The (W)ego installation located at Marktplein square is part of a research conducted by the Why Factory that investigates participatory processes applied to lodging.
(W)ego proposes a new urban model whose primal matter is the users’ most elaborate fantasies. It aspires to reconstruct, in a dense urban environment, a participative dream, a living mosaic that contains an unlimited amount of desired accommodation solutions.
