DISSOLVING CITY

When overlapping population increasing trend from 2000 to 2080 with other important indexes such as PPP, job opportunity, virtual water exchange and climate change vulnerability in the global scale, few region in the world has enough natural resource, capital and manpower to sustain a comprehensive growth by itself. Growth juxtaposes with declination globally and regionally.

The imbalanced distribution of material, capital and manpower is essential to reshape industrial development and the flows of exchange. It melts many cultural boundaries in global scale, but redraws conflicts in a micro scale. It may revert the regional trend of urbanization to de-urbanization. It stimulates design of controversies: urban, farming, industry, and landscape preservation.

A series of research and design has been directed under the model of Dissolving City.  It states to reshape fragmented sites and controversial elements, through symbiotic evolution of infrastructure, farming, landscape and social media.  “Big”, “medium” or “small” scale is apt to the specific site and cultural background.
