One city, one nation? Which population can become the “world future citizenship” becoming “Darwinian” the dominant one?
Cityvision imagined, in continuity with the contemporary history, that this place must be “entitled” to China. As we know China is a country that is imposing itself at all economic and social levels (its resident population is already the 20% of the global total).
For this reason, according to Cityvision, the first approximation to a ‘global city’ will occur with the Chinese capital, Beijing, seen more as an idea or an ideal city rather than a tangible reality that simply evolves over time.
It’s very important for us, in addition to the urban context, imaging the inhabitants of the future and the way they will live. Citizens who will not be simple “Chinese” but that will evolve according to a model of social hybridization.
We started writing this brief taking in consideration the fact that we become smarter and aware of each detail of our body and a natural evolution is unlikely to have effect on our species.
In a few decades we will be able to decide what form to give to our body and completely control our physical configuration.
Reshaping our bodies with technology, engineering them genetically to be free from illness, increased intelligence, strength, and maybe live longer….these are all possible scenarios.
We believe that our era can be one of the last generations witnessing the existence of Homo Sapiens as determined by the natural world, and soon a new stage of evolution will come to life.
