Third Generation City is the organic ruin of the industrial city - an organic machine. Ruin is when man-made has become part of nature. The ruining process is generated by the site-specific Local Knowledge that penetrates through the human controlled hard surfaces of the modern city and reaches its original ground. The city will be tuned towards the organic by cross-disciplinary means of Urban Acupuncture. The participatory planning / fight based open source table will host expersts of Local Knowlege, Sociology, Anthropology, Architecture, Urban Design, Environmental Sciences, Natural River Restoration, Environmental Art, Horticulture, Journalism, Drama, Greed. The urban narrative will be written by nature including human nature, not by anything official. The collective urban drama is played on an organic stage.


The thinking and methodology of the Third Generation City is developed by the Ruin Academy in co-operation with the Aalto University SGT Sustainable Global Technologies Finland, Aalto University Department of Environmental Art, Tamkang University Department of Architecture Taiwan and National Taiwan University Department of Sociology.
