PROJECT MANIFESTO

INTEGRATING RAVE VALUES

The design process must consider the unique values that rave culture upholds and use them as grounding points for the development, a manifesto for the new neighbourhood. I find in rave culture today there is a very clear set of ‘rules’ or values that many underground spaces and club nights both adopt and express publicly, as well a number of values found in specific parties, venues and collectives across Europe that can also align with the general values of the rave scene. The project then looks at the possibility of translating these values into an architectural manifesto in order to design a project which aligns with political and social demands of the rave and pushes them into the design of the city in a bid to create a politically charged and (hopefully) radical neighbourhood amongst our capitalist city.
