Abstract

The Chthonopolis
The Chthonopolis is an architectural project for a subterranean post-singularity city. It is built in an artificial crater 1km wide at the top and 1km deep and is home to around three million people.
Located at the centre of an island it is a city of layers actual, virtual and augmented. The physical form of the city is a vast bricollage of spaces and programmes that are stacked and intermingle with each other.
The spaces of the Chthonopolis were created for the purpose of allowing access to a labyrinthine network of underground ‘dream spaces’ that form a mixed reality world where practising the space of the city is part puzzle and part extreme sport.
The function of the Chthonopolis and its labyrinths is to produce a vast non-linear emergent network, utilising the infinite operations of countless individuals, providing random instances that create a myriad of possibilities and in doing this providing the best of all possible worlds.

The Chthonopols was held at The Factory Gallery between May 5th and June 23rd 2017. The Factory Gallery is a project space run by award winning design comnpany Factory Fifteen.

The Chthonopolis was a specially commissioned exhibition as part of the London Festival of Architecture
