About this project
We are Cityvision.
We were born in Rome in 2010 and we are an independent lab for architectural research about the future of the city.
Cityvision’s team is composed of creatives & architects who develop new urban dynamics through free press publications, a new series of engaging talks and a database of visions about thde city of tomorrow. Over the course of these years, we have had to fight with the history of Rome and the waters of Venice; we’ve seen the future of NY traveling in its past; we have experienced the Sick and Wonder of Rio de Janeiro.
Inspired by Dante and the structure of his Divine Comedy, we have subdivided our research into three moments. The first two have been Past Shock and Sick and Wonder. We are missing one final phase in order to complete the trilogy and realize something extraordinary.
The last part of this project is called Evolution and it questions the future of the city as a consequence of the growth and the involution of man - a future that will need to mediate the complex relationship between man and technology.
Thanks to your contribution, we can fully utilize our unique platform to generate exciting architectural research through a series of international events and publications. We will launch an itinerant tour of conferences and exhibitions that starts in Los Angeles in the first week of March, and will continue around the world as we reach out for events in new cities. We will be hosting an international competition about Beijing as an expression of the architecture of future mankind, featuring jury members Sou Fujimoto, Greg Lynn, Sanford Kwinter, Eric de Broche des Combes and Ai Weiwei. And we will pull all of this together with an illustrated monograph that will gather all of our research.
We are Cityvision and we strongly believe in what we do; moreover, we believe that together we could crazily raise the qualitative level of this project, shaping a new world where not only future cities are involved but also you as wanderers within this extraordinary vision.
Noi siamo Cityvision, siamo nati a Roma nel 2010 e siamo un laboratorio indipendente di ricerca architettonica sul futuro della città.
Il nostro team è composto da architetti e creativi che sviluppano nuove dinamiche urbane attraverso pubblicazioni free press, nuove serie di talks ed un database di visioni sul futuro delle città.
Nel corso di questi anni abbiamo sfidato la storia di Roma e le acque di Venezia; abbiamo visto il futuro di New York viaggiando nel suo passato; abbiamo cercato di comprendere il disgusto e la meraviglia di Rio de Janeiro.
Ispirati da Dante e dalla struttura della sua Divina Commedia, abbiamo suddiviso la nostra ricerca in 3 momenti. I primi due sono stati Past Shock e Sick and Wonder. Ce ne manca uno per completare la trilogia e realizzare così qualcosa di straordinario.
L'ultimo tassello di questo progetto si chiama Evolution e si interrogherà sul futuro della città come conseguenza dell'evoluzione o involuzione dell'uomo. Un futuro che dovrà mediare quel complesso rapporto tra essere umano e tecnologia.
Grazie al tuo contributo potremo realizzare un Tour itinerante di conferenze e mostre che partirà da Los Angeles il prossimo 6 Marzo fino a toccare nuove città, un concorso sul futuro di Beijing e la futura architettura dell'uomo con in giuria Sou Fujimoto, Greg Lynn, Sanford Kwinter, Eric de Broche des Combes ed Ai Weiwei insieme ad una monografia illustrata che conterrà l'intera ricerca.
Noi siamo Cityvision e crediamo fortemente in quello che facciamo, ma soprattutto crediamo che insieme a te possiamo "pazzescamente" innalzare il livello qualitativo del progetto e immaginare una nuova visione della città di domani.

Risks and challenges
Once we complete funding the project, we are going to select the upcoming steps for our itinerant tour, in order to touch at least ten cities across italy, europe and the world, spreading Cityvision's Evolution project among all creatives and architects, as well as the new competition and the research involved with it. The more support we get, the more our capacity to take our project further will increase, and we will be able to finalize our journey with the monograph of the Worlds of Cityvision.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
