Stgt_55+_Happy#ning_NOW The reinvention of nature. Primates, cyborgs and women Stuttgart in 2055+. Self-sufficient and independent. All are producers and consumers. Stuttgart as a center
of advancing research, innovative discoveries. A socio-economic cycle that works in itself. Products drive locally, what travels globally is data. Stuttgart, 90 % of the city of
2055 is already built. Information flow. Directions for a happy society. Architecture as a discipline that embodies the foundation and wishes of society.
Architecture that is not only oriented towards nature, but is nature. Materials as dynamic systems. Alive in their properties and at the same time responsive to our needs. The
What will Stuttgart look like in 35 years? Sonia Wipfler puts forward the thesis that by 2055, the majority of all necessary buildings will already have been erected and, for the benefit of the population
works. Architecture now only has the task of making people happy. The jury liked the idea of the new role attributed to architecture, as well as the chosen
unconventional presentation format. The contribution does not express itself as an architectural design in plans and models, but is intended to be a stage direction for a happy life. Also
this can and should be the task of architects. A visionary idea and a very creative contribution to the aed competition "neuland"!
