Cities began as a simple collection of individuals sharing common elements. They have slowly evolved to include megageopolitical networks. These systems have been manifested by large, far reaching governmental and corporate built forms. With the emergence of dispersed infrastructural realities [mobiles, pvs, drones, etc], we stand at a disruptive moment – where the assumed reliance of human habitat upon top down forms is in question.
Our current reality of global capitalism has left our rural lands behind. Whether the vacancies of Italy, villagers in China, or small town America; the challenges facing the rural have yet to be resolved. But there are hints in constellation urbanism for alternative futures for our rural habitats. The necessity for greater logistical, ecological, and economical connections in these places to our new global reality can be seen in dispersed infrastructures and accompanying Autonomous Urbanisms. A new form of interdependent individuality is possible.
