The Transcendent city

, 10 August 2010

Remarkably beautiful concept of a futuristic sustainable city where machines have obviously overtaken humans and fused themselves with nature becoming the nature itself. Richard Hardy (from Weareom) is behind this film which was produced for his final year Masters in Architecture @ The Bartlett…

Transcendence” in this case referring to a point when artificial intelligence has reached or surpassed that of the human. The Transcendent City is an autonomous artificial machine that extends across the earth adapting to the natural eco-systems it encounters while deriving its energy from the renewable resources available at each particular site.

Clearly inspired from the organic-machine worlds from the 80s comic-books… music by Sonically Yours. More images on his flickr account.
