Free Land, MVRDV + The Why Factory, Biennale di Venezia, 2012

MVRDV and T?F imagined a new kind of city and urban typology (FREE LAND) that is based on self-organization as a sort of provocation towards the prevalently practiced classical centralized planning. Inhabitants could choose what kind of house they want and actually do what they want in their plot but always without arming others. If the inhabitants collaborate each other to provide food and energy they would reach a better quality of life in their neighbors!


This is a great experiment for our times which helps us to re-think about city organization and urban planning.
