The Richly Imagined Future
Defining New Frameworks
Based upon the structures that have formed communities, the ideologies that govern them, and the resources that progresses them, we set on a journey to realize a new harmonious community that bridges the gap between the natural and the man-made world. Our journey started with researching case studies and social, economic, and political frameworks within societies. Allwoing us to define and develop our new framework for a second nature society. One in which people and nature lived in balance and harmony and became unified.
The same way cities are built, to establish our new community, we started from the inside out. Defining values instead of ideologies, describing our main resources, and then constructing the community's structure and internal systems. The new community of Aurelia of the Compos Mentis revolves around the Self and its relationship with the surrounding world, acknowledging the role of each individual in the structure of the community. The term "I see myself through you" becomes a guidence for each individual to reflect upon their personal performance and as a member of the community.
For the city plan and structure, each elements constituting it was designed as a symbol and reflection of the values and the prinicples of the community's core. The organization of enterprises, the function of each, and how they are incorporated in people's lives was all created to capture the essence of Aurelia.
