Abstract

The Gold Mine is an architectural project for a post-scarcity, post-singularity city set on Canvey Island. The project is intended to test the application of speculative ideas taken from literary science fiction combined with concepts currently being developed in Nano-Bio-Info-Cogno technologies and framed within the context of a formal architectural project. The Gold Mine is seen as a speculative architectural design intended to ask 'what-if' questions about the nature of our cities and re-ignite debates around the concept of utopia, proposing a radically different model of human organisation at a time when neo-liberal ideologies dominate our thinking on the city.
