BOREALIS - THE LIVING UNIVERSITY OF THE NORTH

APPLICATION TO WORLD MILLENNIUM
PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS

STAGE I  :  PROJECT EASEL : THE EXPERIMENTAL URBAN MODULE

 DEVELOPMENT of the PROJECT 

  

    This stage is in three parts. The first part is the collecting of relevant research information which is available in various forms and in scattered locations.  Much of the technological know-how, studies, and methodology necessary for project Easel has been completed at various locations in the world.  Therefore it is imperative that these findings be gathered and co-ordinated so that time is not wasted in needless duplication.  Easy access to this stored data along with a periodic review and updating will be integrated into a suitable information retrieval system.  This process would continue throughout the development of project Easel, and become a permanent resource of the city's information and communications centre.

    The second part of the research stage is the synthesis of the gathered material.  New programs and studies, independently developed, can have entirely different scope when brought together.  It is through the synthesis of studies that new forms can be developed and enlarged.

    The third part is the development of new programs and the planning and architectural rendering of the Experimental Urban Module (EUM).  The technologies and building materials and techniques will be developed in terms of a general geographical location which fits the conditions of the area under consideration. It is not our intention to establish the parameters of the entire city in this stage, but rather to plan a community of 1,500 to 2,000 persons which, like a seed, germinates and flowers according to its founding code. The definition of this code shall be established in the research and planning stage and take the form of the following:

    1.) Architectural plans &renderings of EUM

    2.) Initial land survey

    3.) Guidebook

    4.) Cost analysis and Budgets for EUM.

    5.) Films

    6.) Data and research bank

    7.) Subcontract Bids - EUM

    8.) Other criteria.
