Frac Centre, October 11, 2019

“Through artificial intelligence- the work featured will be exposed to a perpetual state of transformation and mutation. The exhibition gathers a key set of practices- primarily from architecture- but also from art and fashion, to reveal facets of the strange beast that the tumultuous paradigm shifts of recent decades have left behind.” -Hernan Diaz Alonso

Five Smart Cities Proposed for North America

Dezeen, October 28, 2019

Blockchains City appeared in Dezeen's article on North American smart cities.

From a smart forest in Mexico to a Nevada desert city powered by blockchain, a wave of smart cities are being proposed in North America.

Jeffrey Berns- who made a fortune selling cryptocurrency last year- has bought a large parcel of Nevada's desert with the aim of turning it into a smart city powered by blockchain technology.

The Innovation Park city is intended to be designed by Ehrlich Yanai Rhee Chaney Architects and Tom Wiscombe Architecture and based on blockchain – a set of digital records that track transactions chronologically and publicly, but cannot be modified – to offer greater privacy and data control. For example, occupants of Innovation Park would be able to bank, vote and store data in the blockchain- without including middlemen or the government.
