A Collective Road to Demodernization
Yunni Cho, Bernardo Sandoval
Unlike the promises of modernity in design, a single solution fulfills no one's wish. Even if all of us live in the same city under the same environment, everyone is different. Each one of us has individual voices filled with different needs and wants. However, in cities full of modernist structures across the globe, individual differences or cultural uniqueness can no longer be seen.
Can design provide a space for uniqueness?
Can every citizen be represented equally in a collective space?
Instead of alienating ourselves in this concrete habitat, can we re-learn from nature and cultural expressions?"
This film speaks for providing people opportunities to design our future knowing the importance of belonging, of nature, of community and connection. Instead of learning from standardized modernist practices full of concrete and computer programs, we need to learn from our past, from nature, and from our own hands. In order to let everyone's voice be heard, we need to first create a space that enables us to embrace our differences in its design.
