AUDI URBAN FUTURE: PROJECT NEW YORK New York, NY 2011 PROPOSAL URBAN 1 sq. ft.
Our proposal for the Audi Urban Future: Project New York exhibition on the future of urban mobility, on based on Standard Architecture�s previous proposal for a metropolis �reclaimed by nature�, imagines a city with new and unpredictable relationships with nature. While mobility is an essential part of contemporary life for human beings, it is also a basic necessity for maintaining bio-diverse ecologies in urban settings like Manhattan. As weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable and environmental conditions more dire, increasing biodiversity will maximize the resilience of the city while minimizing disaster risk and aid recovery efforts. In order to capitalize on biodiversity, Manhattan will have to relinquish a certain degree of control. By introducing a new zoning and organizational system that mobilizes ecologies and animal species, the city will benefit from a nature that is not artificial, controlled, or well-behaved. This new development will offer a resilient form of growth for the future of the city by prioritizing the mobility of ecologies as much as human beings.
