Vocabulary for Ecumenopolis / 2014
“Vocabulary for Ecumenopolis” is a video-essay that introduces a new set of urban lexi- con based on an idea that we have been working with recently: the term of ECUMENOPOLIS. This precept assumes that the whole world is in fact urban, getting rid of urban/rural divides, and understanding the world as a whole in the era of globalization. We identified a set of urban phenomenon that we find is unique of this new global city: situations and contexts that can be transposed to other settings in this city of planetary dimensions.
