With Today times so changing, we have all wondered how technological developments, social changes and pandemics will affect the future. The VALENCIA 360 project, by World Design Capital Valencia 2022 and the Las Naves innovation center, through its laboratory for a better future Futur lab, try to provide answers to these questions, and more specifically for our city. Five teams of designers – Valencian and international – have created a series of visualizations of various locations in the city of Valencia. Each team with a different graphic style has represented that space in a 360-degree image, allowing the viewer to fully enter their creation. The images can be visited through our smartphone, a computer or Virtual Reality glasses.
To encourage discussion we have asked them to design one half in what they consider a utopian future and the other half what a dystopian future would be. The images represent relevant issues such as tourism, lack of resources, desertification, natural disasters, etc. With these representations we intend to generate a debate around the city of Valencia.
