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 Participatory Planning. The open source table will host expersts of Local Knowlege, Sociology, Anthropology, Architecture, Urban Design, Environmental Sciences, Natural River Restoration, Environmental Art, Horticulture, Journalism and Drama. The urban narrative will be written by nature including human nature, not by anything official. The collective urban drama will be 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, Tamkang University Department of Architecture Taiwan and National Taiwan University Department of Sociology. The research is kindly supported by the JUT Foundation for Arts and Architecture.
