THE GREEN PEOPLE


Following the worldwide ecological crisis of the 21st century, humankind establishes its new settlements in green megacities which take the form of wild mountains and landscapes. Humans live in very close relationship to an idealized form of nature.
However, in order to sustain their inhabitants, these cities need to occupy the hinterland with fully-controlled productive elements. Fields of wind-towers, solar  panels, biofuel, infinite rows of greenhouses for mass organic foods, data centers and automated factories all maintain the quality of life and levels of comfort of this  civilization. The ideal, natural city is thus opposed to the rationalized, exploited landscape.
A space designed without humans which, out of sight, ceases to exist.

“Citizens of Ecotopia! I thank you for gathering for
this 61st commemoration of the foundation of our
beautiful city. Since our mountain was erected 61
years ago, we have known a period of endless
bounty and joy. Thanks to science and technology,
we have ended world hunger and disease. We have
maintained pre-climate change levels of comfort for
all citizens worldwide. We now live at peace and
in complete harmony with nature on our beautiful
mountain. Every citizen knows to joy of running
through the forest with the wild animals by our side,
swimming in the pristine streams and observing the
stars beyond the snowy peaks. My dear citizens,
let us celebrate this 61st year of utopia.”
