The 3rd I project workshops began on Tuesday, May 18. After a general introduction, a Skype meeting with the Shanghai project group, and a lecture on hybrid cities, the group members finally got down to work on the project. The group, consisting of school pupils, students, architects and an artist, was filmed during the gathering by the Couscous Global camera team. 

After a brief word of welcome by the Rotterdam project manager, Maarten Rens, the various aspects of the project were explained. The participants will make different models of the ideal city of the future, keeping in mind residents’ wishes and technical possibilities. These models will be professionally reproduced in Shanghai and exhibited at the Dutch Culture Centre as part of the World Expo. A corresponding team in Shanghai will perform the same tasks. Ultimately, a total of 18 models will be exhibited in a miniature city. People will be able to visit this city using robots that can be controlled over the Internet and at two exhibitions, one in Shanghai and the other in Rotterdam. 

A Skype meeting was held to inspire both groups. The participants asked each other questions to find out about similarities and differences between the two cities. For instance, how fast is each city changing? How do city planners involve the population in their plans? And how is space made for new buildings? 

Tijmen Schep’s lecture on the hybrid city looked at changes in the city and the role technology has played in these. He also cautioned that breaches of privacy can accompany this technology. “Become aware of the fact that your utopia could be another’s dystopia,” he warned. 

Participants from Shanghai and Rotterdam publish their research and projects on http://3rdeye2010.wordpress.com.
