SCARCE CITIES
Baptiste Picq

The project was executed for the exhibition Designing Scarcity at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam (2014). Scarce Cities is a fictive website. Drawing from the large architecture archives at Het Nieuwe Instituut this video expresses the notion of scarcity in several architecture projects. It shows how users can build their own utopian city. By extracting fragments from all kinds of projects in the museum’s archives the user creates a collage and then broadcasts it online.
