Citizen Evolution: Winners of “Project Vienna – A Design Strategy”

In collaboration with Marei Wollersberger, our project for the Future of Vienna entitled ‘CitizenEvolution’ has been chosen to be exhibited at the MAK in Vienna. One scenario describes how adapting rooftops in Vienna will enable individuals to generate energy by extracting filtered bio gases from pigeon poo. Our work was recently posted on the Austrian newspaper website called kurier:

“Project Vienna – A Design Strategy – Designstrategien für die Zukunft Wiens | kurier.at
“Marei Wollersberger and Jessica Charlesworth propose 4 hypothetical scenarios, that create new social structures and dynamics in the city through new interactions and usage of existing resources. For example the pigeonry of the new generation: the consumer generates energy by extracting filtered bio gases from pigeon shit directly on his rooftop.”
