Post-Utopia [recycling Plato]


We see architecture as a living shell which combines aesthetic forms, as a private space that creates social interactivity, as a shelter, as a hope for happiness.

Homes are turned into small factories of managing resources, energy, fears and security. Garbage, water, even temperature are being recycled and stored for later usage. Actions with in our homes are monitored and controlled even for our mobile telephones. How could nature be part of it? How could we be part of nature? How could we propose a utopia where things could face reality in another way?

Our proposal is a “fresh” approach to happiness management where nature, architectural forms and “socio-artistic technology”* could be blended together and manage, store and recycle happiness, hope and could contribute in an almost pop way to better living and why not pleasure.

* [invented term]

This proposal blends three parts:

  1. Nature as a sensing mechanism
  2. The architectural form
  3. The “socio-artistic technology”* which can collect, store and transmit when needed the … well –being.

Real plants will sense the space and positive vibes in a quantum approach. When good vibes are sense, they will be stored on a special “well-being container / deposit” in the house.

Special sensors, are places in artworks, pets, and other objects in the house and will collect positive thinking, happiness, feelings and hope and will also be stored in the “well-being container / deposit” in the house.

The same sensors will sense bad vibes and feelings and trigger the “well-being container / deposit” to start releasing good feelings in the space in the form of ions and quantum “particles”
