The Evolutionary City (Game:)
MVRDV , Delft School of Design
 
 
 
Directed by Winy Maas of MVRDV, Space Fighter presents the Evolutionary City by the Action Space! studio. An ambitious project to create a new ‘simulator’ tool for both urban planners and project managers alike. The journey begins with evolution, Darwin’s phenotypes and the realms of biology, sociology, and economics. Pumped by evolution's magic, the studio delves into game theory, synthesizing a set of games modeled on diverse aspects of the city - from the practicality of a building developer’s tasks to the intangible social aspects of a city.

An MVRDV/DSD project in collaboration with the Berlage Institute, MIT and cThrough.

Reviews:
"Space Fighter suggests that tomorrow's cities will be run like video games, an organizational challenge best addressed through simulations, not the book-based planning of today's town halls.  So will mayors one day fire their planners and pick up a Wii?  Only time will tell." Dwell Magazine
