About
Tangible Utopias is a groundbreaking VR franchise immersing the viewer as a first-person into an Odyssey of potential future city scenarios, inspired by the imagination of children worldwide.

The project is a continuation of the transmedia universe entitled Government of Children – a civic imagination-driven transmedia world (3D film, VR, web), that encourages children from all over the world to see themselves as leadersand to design their societal future.

We have gathered hundreds of visions that will selectively serve as a script for the current VR universe.

Tangible Utopias aims to design alternative multi-layered futuristic societies.

The current NOE-FI world is part of an ongoing transmedia franchise.

The Sponge
City
What if buildings could absorb rain water and process it into drinkable water? What if in this way we could live in places that otherwise would feel unaccessible? We loved this premise inspired by the imaginary of kids and took it as far as we could.

The Textile
City
What if our walls would be flexible? And what if our homes could feel the wind, the sun, the rain, depending on how enjoyable they are? Textile City emerged from these questions asked by a multitude of children.

The Triangles
City
Triangle City emerged from the visions of multiple visionary kids pleading for mobile homes, modular habitats and highly colorful cityscapes.Triangles can be nomad or static depending on the personality of the inhabitants. There is a profound poetry emerging from this charming futuristic space.

The Spheres City
Rounded-shaped statement buildings were inspired by the vision of a girl at first. We kept on adding layers from many other children: mobile habitats, pools, environments filled with both elevated nature and tech. Spheres City was the very first futuristic world we have brought to life into VR with the kind support of the transdisciplinary team.

Gardens City
What if we could combine and elevate what we love from our current world: skyscrapers and nature? Well, vertical gardens could please us widely, offering both an oxygen-dense atmos and a hi-tech lifestyle.
