Neo-futuristic Walks

The Neo-futuristic Walks is a series of…

“walkable” city inspections that are about to spread all around the globe. Through the act of walking, it explores the primal bodily experiences role in unfolding new relationships with and within urban environments.

Neo-futurists employ context-sensitive speculative scenarios and live in constant preparations for the city’s futures, which later manifest in the shape of the walkable, open for public events. The project invites everyone to step away from existing limitations, standardised lifestyles and see our cities as huge lively ecosystems where every individual’s well being is interdependent. The project Neo-futuristic Walks was initiated at the end of 2020 by two spatial designers Aušra Česnauskytė and Goda Verikaitė. It was developed as a part of the Experiments platform organised by Architektūros Fondas.

The first set of Neo-futuristic Walks started in Vilnius and London where an interdisciplinary community of students and other creatives were gathered for four months of city inspections. Goda and Aušra curated a series of online/offline workshops to start a dialogue between two contexts and kick off the creative exchange. The virtual dimension, as the space in between, allowed not only to overview the overarching global issues but also to discover the unique qualities of each context. In June 2021, the project as a performative tour was presented at the London Festival of Architecture 2021. In August 2021, a parallel event took place in Vilnius.

During the Dutch Design Week, Neo-futuristic Walks will showcase the results of the first project phase and invite participants for the discussion on collective imagination. Moreover, DDW visitors will be invited to join a workshop of ”urban gleaning” in Eindhoven, so for a while, they can become neo-futurists themselves.
