PIXCITY

MIGRATE TO THE FUTURE

Co-Build Future Human Habitat

PIXCITY

A CO-BUILD, SELF-ORGANIZING,
AND SUSTAINABLE CITY BASED ON NEW TECHNOLOGIES.

PIXCITY is designed to address issues arising in modern cities, and to challenge the difficulties that humanity will encounter soon, via the decentralized organization and operation mode, and the utilization of the new technologies.  

OUR  VISION

REFLECTING ON THE ESSENCE OF THE CITY, THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN HUMANS AND LIVING SPACE.

The ultimate goal of PIXCITY is to form a sustainable city paradigm, turning the abstract notion "living space" into something accessible with its adaptability and mobility

CHALLENGE

ISSUES THAT AFFLICT THE MODERN CITIES

Modern cities are now being afflicated by traffic congestion, over-centralization, unaffordable housing and privacy disclosure due to the general uneven distribution of space resources.

INCOMPATIBILITIES OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND MODERN CITIES

The rigid modern urban paradigms are not suitable for the application and integration of new technologies, such as autonomous driving, robotics, blockchain, vertical farming, AI, 3D printing, VR, etc.

 

It comes to our desperate need to build a new city.

THIS IS WHY WE LAUNCHED THE PIXCITY PROJECT, WHICH AIMS TO DESIGN, AND CO-BUILD A NEW CITY OF

THE FUTURE

WHAT  IS  PIXCITY ?

A CO-BUILD, SELF-ORGANIZING AND SUSTAINABLE CITY
THAT IS DESIGNED TO ADDRESS ISSUES ARISING IN MODERN CITIES.

Decentralized urban organization and operation, auto-driving, the internet of things, VR, 3D printing, and city bots will be merged with cultural and artistic elements to challenge the difficulties that humanity will encounter in the near future.

PIXCITY is co-created by world citizens and digital nomads, who are involved in building and rule-making process of the city.

PIXCITY residents will exert new technologies to explore new strategies for better public life, including urban living space and privacy protection, and sustainable development.

 

In the interdisciplinary exchange and co-creation of residents, the community will breed a rich variety of musical, artistic, and cultural activities, where everyone can be a creator, organizer, and participant.

HOW TO BUILD
PIXCITY?

ONLINE HACKTHON AND
ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION

PIXCITY is a prototype proposed by PIXCITY DAO* to encourage the exploration, design, and construction of the future city. It is an experimental project that merges new technologies and artistic design, which will be completed both online and offline.

Hackcity 1.0

 

Stage 1: Registration (designers and architects)

Stage 2: Registration (residents and institutions)

Stage 3: Constructing the experimental urban community

Stage 4: Operating on-site daily activities for 3-6 months

 

Then more decentralized Hackcity projects:

 

Hackcity 2.0, Hackcity 3.0 ...

 

and more on-site PIXCITIES all around the world.

*PIXCITY DAO is an independent decentralized organization that exists to land, run, and support the "Future City" innovation, as well as to inspire every member to explore and design their own future based on intuitive activities.

Every sitting member of PIXCITY DAO is required to vote and pay "chips" before making decisions, resulting in due deliberation. To ensure the project is open, transparent, traceable, efficient, and fair, all rules and transactions will be recorded on the blockchain.

PIX HAS BEEN REFLECTING ON THE ESSENCE OF THE CITY

HUMAN-SPACE RELATIONSHIP

 AND IS DEVOTED TO REMOLDING THE CITY USING AUTONOMOUS DRIVING TECHNOLOGIES. EVERY SELF-DRIVING VEHICLE IS A MOVING SPACE, AND IT IS THESE UNIQUE MOVING SPACES THAT COMPOSE THIS URBAN SUPERORGANISM.

pixcity-pod-s.png

Assuming that the living spaces in PIXCITY are composed of these modulated moving spaces, residents can freely use the "gyms," "karaoke rooms," and even "coffee shops" to connect and enlarge their living areas. This would effectively reduce the living expenses of urban youths while also providing a sustainable urban design paradigm.

Currently, PIX has developed the ultraskateboard and self-driving moving space - Robobus as the future city's mobile infrastructure. We are paving the way for future cities.

HACKCITY 

AN ONGOING SERIES OF DECENTRALIZED HACKATHONS
AIMED AT COMPLETING THE DESIGN OF A FUTURE SMART CITY,
PIXCITY, BASED ON AUTONOMOUS MOBILE SPACES.

The first Hackathon will focus on the city's blueprint, and subsequent Hackathons will mount more challenges on elaborating the interior details and ecosystem.

Eventually, some fine pieces of the solution will be landed as an actual project, which may be a short-term event or even turn into a long-term community.

The incoming operation of PIXCity will benefit all Hackcity contributors.

 

Its shape will evolve and improve as a result of a series of Hackathons as well as actual city construction and operation.

Hackcity 1.0

GOAL

To build PIXCITY as an autonomous, responsive, and futuristic urban community that can run for 3-6 months, comprising 100 autonomous mobile spaces as base modules that host various functions and can be rapidly assembled and disassembled.

 

The community caters to all aspects of public life, including culture, music, art, and creation, as well as business, work, and entertainment. It will contain residents, but it will also be open to digital nomads and global citizens.

In 31 days, participants (both architects and urban designers) will work in teams to design PIXCity's infrastructure, visual form, and an urban plan for how to operate the self-driving mobile spaces and provide service to residents for 3-6 months.

 

It is required to email us the design work and present the entire plan on the final selection day. PIX will provide technical and mechanical assistance to the winning teams to formulate and even land the project.

REQUIREMENT

Hackcity 1.0, themed "100 MOVING PIXELS ", is attempting to build PIXCity, an autonomous, responsive, and sustainable city of the future using 100 PIX vehicles. The entries should think about how to connect and assemble the "pixels," presenting a dynamic scenario of the future smart city.

 

Entries must focus on two sectors: new technologies and modular moving space, with four dimensions in mind: sharable, configurable, connectable, and achievable. The work should be both innovative and practical, integrating cutting-edge new technologies. The following design perspectives are offered as examples:

uhVvKt.tif

1

Address the issues afflicting modern cities, such as traffic congestion, over-centralization, uneven resource distribution, unaffordable housing, privacy disclosure, and so forth. Using new technologies, human culture, and art to tackle the problems listed above and future challenges facing humanity, including but not limited to autonomous driving, assembled architecture, mobile space, blockchain, Web3.0, Metaverse, Internet of Things, VR, 3D printing, and AI.

2

Autonomous mobility is based on the essence of the city, which is the human-living-space relationship. To make configurable and shareable space a reality using self-driving technology. It will increase the efficiency of space distribution, resulting in a more responsive and sustainable smart city.

Sustainable development. Envision the dynamic scenarios of urban service robots, Citybot (self-driving cleaning vehicles, delivery vehicles, and mobile charging vehicles), operating in PIXCity.

PARTICIPANTS

Hackcity 1.0 is looking for innovative architects, urban designers, urban scientists, and institutions. It is also open to architectural and urban design professionals, students, and enthusiasts.

 

In the spirit of decentralization, all participants will be gathering in the PIXCITY DAO online prep-camp one week before the event, getting to know and connect with each other before teaming up to enter the tournament.
