During this workshop, we have analyses typologies, heights, floor area ratios, accessibility, energy, biodiversity, food, automation… We have measured and compared all that can be quantified.

What do 11 billion people need? What does one person need? During this workshop, we have analyses typologies, heights, floor area ratios, accessibility, energy, biodiversity, food, automation… We have measured and compared all that can be quantified. But we did not not avoid getting to the bottom of the matter, to the bottom of the wishing well that the city represents to its inhabitants: we talked about the world in the first person too.
An (almost) infinite matrix of components was developed, trying to measure human settlement at a global scale.
Our aim: to develop a quantitative analysis of the global footprint of a 11 billion people city. Can we depict the world in an Excel sheet?
This workshop has let students familiarize with The Why Factory’s methodology (from data collection to scenario based research) and with the topics they will be exploring throughout the semester in all design studios. It permitted the development of a common methodology, and helped building a collective database and a common template to later be applied in the different design studios at different scales.
