Hyperhabitat, reprogramming the world is the biggest Internet Zero network ever built. This video shows how the installation at the Venice Biennale Architecture Exhibition works, how are established the relations between objects and scales, nodes and codelines, visualization and representation.
Hyperhabitat is now exhibited at the Arsenale, Venice and it will be open to public untill November 23rd.
Hyperhabitat. Reprogramming the World is an installation directed by Vicente Guallart and produced for the 11th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale, which will be curated by Aaron Betsky under the title Out There: Architecture Beyond Building.
The project engages with the theme of the Biennale by positing the need to reprogramme the structures with which we inhabit the world through the introduction of distributed intelligence in the nodes, networks and environments with which we construct buildings, cities and territories.
The installation includes the construction of a house with shared spaces made of methacrylates with embedded microservers, which interact with one another to generate relationships that are displayed as a large-format projection on which line codes can be drawn to suggest relationships or ‘line codes’ between nodes. In addition a special web platform, to be launched on November 24, will enable people around the world to put forward formulas for reprogramming the world.
The project incorporates key recent developments in digital manufacturing, the creation of Internet 0 (a new microserver technology developed at MIT to generate ambient intelligence by linking a series of miniature computers) and the theory of the multiscale habitat, an ‘urban genome’ project developed at IaaC that seeks to introduce new approaches to the generation of buildings and cities by restructuring the functional relationships between the constituent parts.
