'Wormhole Syncronic Capsule'

ABSTRACT

1st Speculative Architecture Festival

How is the legacy stablished? How do we represent the future generations in our architecture designs? 

During this day we shall design a device to communicate with the future peoples: a time capsule will become our syncronic wormhole to connect past present, and future. Throughout the workshop, we shall collect the wonderful evidences that will make up the memory of what is worth remembering. The last day, we shall perform a collective ritual to close and bury the capsule that will only be opened by the inhabitants of the future.

The capsule will remain burried during the next 100 years at Finca Torreponsa. Therefore, none of us will see its content anymore. We have the responsibility to inform someone about the location of the the capsule. Only the designated inheritors will be able to access to the content in 2116.

To finish, we shall set up a digital chronometer that will indicate the countdown for the next 100 years, until the opening day. We shall all commit ourselves to keep the secret of the location of the capsule and we shall be in charge of choosing the heir to whom we shall give the right of opening the capsule, before our death.
