What would you do if you had an enormous empty space to fill in your city? The Extremely Vast and Incredibly Close Future workshop invites inhabitants of Aleksotas and Kaunas in imagining together how to use in the near future the site of the former military base that will host the Kaunas Innovation and Industry Park.
The experiential city-making activity will guide participants in discovering the area and voicing desires and challenges to ideate uses serving the community in the meanwhile until the finalization of the Innovation Park.
Instead of focusing on fictional, far away futures that can spark imagination but rarely lead to applicable results, the workshop focuses on the close future, seeking to capture community demands. The data resulting from the workshop will be utilized for designing multiple digital models of the area that will illustrate the ideas that emerged and make it possible to integrate them in regeneration plans. As such, the workshop kicks off digital placemaking in the area.
Extremely Vast and Incredibly Close Future is ideated and curated by Marta Arniani (Futuribile), in the EU-funded project T-Factor.
