Foundation for Transportation
Foundation for Transportation: How Bochum transports the Future through the Commons
you can have a look at my master thesis here. There is a little video and by clicking the download link below, you can download the full report.
All previous three industrial revolutions shaped the site of the Opel factory in Bochum, Germany through great spatial, economical and social impacts. Once a symbol of prosperous growth and structural change, this monument of mass-manufacturing is now closed and being demolished. On the remaining Ruins of Capitalism this project proposes a new direction for another fourth industrial revolution. Building up on the old industry, the last remaining hall of the factory will be transformed to an Incubator of a Revolution that is collaborative and open in nature and will give growth to a commons-based local industry. Ultimately it forms a Foundation for Transportation that allows the emergence of a new planning paradigm evolving out of the open-source culture and utilizing new technologies in the most reasonable and trustworthy way.
