MICRONOVUS


Futures and Beyond
2012

This project proposes the creation of a communist micronation in Hackney Wick. Based on Marxist Materialism, the project seeks to ‘change the economic base’ by creating a new currency - and explores how the ‘superstructure’ of society reacts to this economic shift, and the social elements of society might change. 


The architecture consists of a new civic centre; townhall, bank, mint + market.
