#sectiondrawing by Xutian Liu @xutian.sid.liu and Feibai An @phoeoeoe completed during the Market Values: New Economies for New York Studio led by Tei Carpenter @teicarpenter.
This studio designs sites of transaction and exchange—a marketplace —as a way to reflect upon its corresponding new societies. The dominant mode of unchecked capital accumulation and economic growth has had accelerating effects on climate crisis, carbon emissions, resource extraction, and encouraged a culture of discard. To that end, increased social inequity, overconsumption, overconnection, and political disinformation have impacted peoples’ anxiety, happiness and sense of belonging. But this mode of living has reached exhaustion. Using the power of speculative design, borrowed from practitioners like Dunne & Raby, we imagine and visualize a marketplace with new economies that suggest shifts in behavior and attitudes for an alternative model of society. Building on case study research to assemble a dossier of social models and organizations, students develop a future-oriented and speculative design for a marketplace in New York City as a manifestation and index for a new economy and value system that it facilitates.
