Welcome To Fab City Summit 2018
The rapid urbanisation process of the last century has been possible thanks to an economy built on top of the industrial revolution and the assembly line. This allowed to rapidly reproduce and replicate infrastructure, products and urban morphologies around the world, standardizing urban life. Cities of today reflect the standardization of industry and linearity of the economy in how the urban dynamics operate: they consume most of the world’s resources and generate most of the world’s waste (according to the United Nations). In the other hand, the exponential growth of digital technologies (computation, communication, fabrication) of the last decades opens new opportunities to enable a transition towards a model based on a global and distributed flow of data (and knowledge) and local flow of materials. 

Fab City connects globally networks of hyper-local infrastructures for fabrication, production, and distribution of goods and resources. By adopting these strategies, cities can radically transform the way production and consumption happen within their metropolitan regions, by replacing standardisation with smart customisation, focusing on interconnected processes instead of isolated products, and more importantly: empowering citizens and communities. The Fab City Global Initiative is an action plan for cities to operate this shift and then become more resilient through the relocalization of the production of energy, food, and products, and by enabling a global community of designers, makers and thinkers that amplify and multiply the scale of this important transformation.

REVERSIBLE: Is our current productive model reversible? can we change its logics? - INCLUSIVE URBANISM AND OPEN CITIES
Reversing current production processes is difficult because most of the products we consume today were never designed with their end of life in mind. Society is beginning to question this approach; high-tech firms are asking for forgiveness for their strategies on planned obsolescence. Governments are making laws about ecology and circular economy and the ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ slogan has been embedded into the global consciousness. The Fab City initiative is progressing this cultural shift, questioning how circularity can be practiced in the city at all levels; from the architectural and planned elements to the way we live as part of it.

Reversible: INCLUSIVE URBANISM AND OPEN CITIES

Cities’ economic logic is putting pressure on citizens and communities around the world. Cities are produced by their citizens, who can provide economic wealth and social cohesion when empowered to do so.

SCALABLE: Can we scale up a new urban paradigm or a massive change? - NEW FORMS OF MAKING IMPACT WHILE MAKING BUSINESS
To change the legacy of industrial production and consumption, we must conceptualise the urgency of our current situation as a Planetary concern. Cities are rich with local initiatives, projects, associations, and activists working for this conscious state: Fab City enables synergies between them, to globalise impact. Each local territory has its specificities, but by practically testing approaches in local ecosystems, theoretical models can be developed; serving as procedural models which could inspire, or be deployed in similar geographies and cities globally. Citizens, small to large enterprise, public institution and private organisations can be engaged in both the implementation and sustainability of these models. Fab City creates ecosystemic global connections between these actors to link ideas, knowledge and prototype models which can be shared, scaled by a global network.

Scalable: New forms of making an impact, while making business

The value generated by entrepreneurs should not be only measured by the profits their creations generate. We will learn how to produce impact in the world while making possible to generate economic flows in a more distributed way.

POSSIBLE: Which are the emergent scenarios that we have as civilisation? - FROM THE URBAN TO THE PLANETARY COMMONS
Sub-session
Attuning to methods of atmospherical sensing: from the urban to the planetary commons

The air and the sun are sources of renewable energy used by Aerocene sculptures to perform their flights. These practices communicate a different way to conceive human action and human relation not only to the environment and its energies, but also to social and political structures. In its name, Aerocene also evokes the possibility of an epochal shift in humanity’s relation with its home planet, and indeed how moving things are populated in the atmosphere and on the Earth.

In the Whole Earth Catalogue (1968), the book that launched the DIY movement, instructions on crafting and making sit alongside essays on energy systems, geology and the ‘cosmic view’. In the future Fab City, experiments with the means of production may be complemented with modes of transportation that collaborate with atmospheric flows and solar flux. From DIY to thermodynamics, the Aerocene project proposes modes of aerial moving and sensing that are fuel free, community-driven, and ethical. In this presentation, members of the Aerocene community will invite the minds and talents of Fab City community to collaborate on future infrastructures of Aerocene transport, from one  Fab City to another. Floating down to Earth’s surface, the team will share Aerocene’s role in urgent monitoring of toxicity with ETER sensors at Villa Inflamable, Argentina. On these scales and others in between, Aerocene comes to Fab City with the generous spirit and challenge of greater ecological sensitivity, from the urban to the planetary commons.

POSSIBLE: Which are the emergent scenarios that we have as civilisation? - BEYOND EARTH EXPLORATION AND ITS IMPACT
Limited Capacity seats available

There is hope. Globally, we must support every initiative that is working to change the present paradigm. Numerous new development models consolidate or propose ways to shift the global mindset. The possibilities presented by technologies such as blockchain or biomaterial are shaping our future. But getting back to basics with a low-tech approach is also key for resilient cities. A future which merges these two seemingly disparate approaches is possible and the Fab City Collective is developing a research environment to explore these visions. By sharing, iterating, exploring, producing, creating, debating existing and actualised initiatives in this field, Fab City is defining what is possible for the future of not just our cities, but of our society.

Sub-session: Beyond earth exploration and its impact

Planet earth is our spaceship, we are passengers who share living systems with other species. It is a fact that we will continue exploring the universe, and it will have a huge impact on how we live on earth.

FAB CONFERENCE - Mid Party
https://www.facebook.com/events/184330002233024/?active_tab=about

À l'occasion du Fab City Summit Paris - FAB14 Plus et dans le cadre de Sonic Makers Camp — Ateliers • Concerts • Résidence mobile (une proposition collective et nomade initiée par le Collectif MU, La Station – Gare des Mines, La Station - SonicLab, le collectif trublion et Urban Spree), La Station - Gare des mines fait la part belle aux makers avec des concerts de GUILHEM ALL, TAPETRONIC, CARBON SINK et un Mini Club dédié au live coding avec ALGORAVE.

Accès libre. 

▬ Tapetronic 
Détournement, recyclage et transformation de cassettes audio et de magnétophones en machines à jouer de la musique. Inventeur, entre autre, de la Scratchette, la cassette qui scratche, ou de la Vibro-K7, de l’Audio-Skate, du Walkman roulant, Tapetronic agit directement sur des dispositifs mécaniques permettant de produire une musique curieuse et dynamique où le geste est source d’énergie. 
https://bit.ly/2K9Ddlo

▬ GUILHEM ALL 
Guilhem All s’est construit un univers musical forgé de ses expériences en milieu souterrain au sein des scènes free, punk et impro. Sa musique oscillant entre indus approximative et électroacoustique négligée se tisse tout au long de voyages improvisés dont on ne connaît que le point de départ : une installation bricolée de 3 électrophones oranges et jaune, en plastique « car ça sonne mieux ». 
https://bit.ly/2Knmib5

▬ Algorave
(Acoustic Devices / Vincent Rioux / Tanguy Roussel / Stan Le Punk)
Algorave is made from “sounds wholly or predominantly characterised by the emission of a succession of repetitive conditionals“.
De nos jours, la musique électronique se fait essentiellement à l'aide de logiciels, mais des barrières artificielles subsistent entre les personnes qui créent les algorithmes et celles qui font de la musique. En utilisant des systèmes de création algorithmique (IXI Lang, puredata, Max/MSP, SuperCollider, Extempore, Fluxus, TidalCycles, Gibber, Sonic Pi, FoxDot et Cyril...), ces barrières sont brisées, et les musiciens composent et codent en direct leur musique.
https://bit.ly/2tQhjZc

▬ CARBON SINK
Carbon Sink est un projet électro-acoustique formé de Gaël Angelis et Magali Sanheira, qui marque leur intérêt commun pour des systèmes d’ amplification et des systèmes électromécaniques “auto-génératifs“, permettant d’activer des objets et matériaux par frottements, percussions ou vibrations.
L’Instrumentation est protéiforme.
Chaque dispositif combine divers objets : poutre IPN, percussions et systèmes de feedback, scanner, charbon et field recordings, ou encore synthétiseur et divers petits moteurs et objets, etc…
Ces associations de formes et d’objets permettent d’improviser autour d’une idée, d’une histoire.
Carbon Sink construit ainsi un environnement musical immersif et organique, aux couleurs concrètes et industrielles, récit imaginaire sur une nature en péril.

Waking up the power of cities and citizens - 120 seats available
Limited Capacity seats available

Waking up the power of cities and citizens. Cities are taking a protagonist role in addressing global challenges such as climate change and social exclusion. Policy makers are adopting new strategies with the rise of digital tools and citizen empowerment. We will learn from the city leaders how this can be done in a collaborative way? which are the best practices so far? how cities are sharing knowledge with their citizens and globally? is democracy ready to make a big transformation? 
The city of Barcelona invites you to have breakfast with the cities of Paris, Oakland and Belo Horizonte to discuss these topics and more coming from the interaction with the audience.

Timetable: 
8:30-9:00 am: Refreshments
9:00-10: 15 am: Conversation between cities
10:15:10:30: Fab City book presentation

Format:

Each city will introduce its own vision around the two main challenges we are facing globally: climate change and social exclusion. The conversation will be moderated by Tomas Diez and Minh Nguyen, who will open questions from the public on the last 15 minutes of the conversation

Meetup - Connecting Fab Labs around the world with Aerosolar Energies
Limited Capacity seats available

What are the social, ecological and political values of fuel-free flight? How can zero-emissions journeys inform the future of Fab Cities ? What new thinking of mobility and energy do initiatives like Aerocene trigger?

Aerocene sculptures fly by trapping energy inside their absorbent membranes. As air inside the membranes expands, this generates lift. This simple relationship between air, solar energy, temperature and pressure enables Aerocene sculptures to travel vast distances, reaching the edge of the stratosphere without burning fossil fuels and without using solar panels and batteries, and without helium, hydrogen and other rare gases. This workshop extends the conversation between Fab City and the Aerocene communities and invites participants to propose and to start co-formalise and co-build experiments with Aerocene sculptures we will later launch together in the context of the Fab City Summit.

Drawing on projects such as Aerocene at Villa Inflamable in Argentina and Launch and Recovery of Free (and tethered) zero emissions flight procedures and Citizen participation of radio spectrum, we actively discuss and reflect on open-source, multi-disciplinary practices within the global Aerocene community.
                            
The meetup is hosted by Aerocene community members Sasha Engelmann, Julieta Arancio, Tomás Saraceno, Erik Vogler and Joaquin Ezcurra.

Meetup - Mobility
Limited Capacity seats available

Clara CERON (picafabra.com) Makers and menders on the move. How can mobile fablabs fit in the ecosystem of urban makerspaces? 

Like their «brick and mortar» counterparts, mobile fablabs have seen their number steadily increase, although they can be very diverse in their typology and purpose. Are they just a gimmick catering to the mobility trend? Or do they fulfill specific needs? And how do they fit in the ecosystem of urban makerspaces* and beyond*? We will be exploring the intersection of mobility and making, assessing existing initiatives and imagining new uses. * I’ll use the word as an umbrella term for fablabs, hackerspaces and other collaborative digital fabrication workhops. And why stop there? I will also mention other repair and mending workshops and even recycling centres [ressourceries], which share some values and missions with them.

Olivia KOTSIFA (stiwdio everywhere)

Yes, there could be chemistry between a textile designer, an outdoor photographer, a maker, an entrepreneur, a programmer. and a surfer.  The question is, where do they all get the chance to meet and talk about their passion that could turn into a collaboration and/or a potential business.  

According to a global co-working survey, 1.7 million people will be working in around 19,000 co-working spaces around the world by the end of 2018. Is it because people travel more? Is it because they are seeking a better work-life balance? How does their workplace/ co-working space look like? What happens in the case of a maker?
When I started setting up Fab Lab Cardiff, there were 60 Fab Labs worldwide, and only one in the U.K.  There are currently 42 in the U.K. and around 1300 worldwide. Why is there a need for more Fab Labs and why are everytime more and younger people so passionate in extending their knowledge by taking the Fab Academy courses?
This talk would discuss the similarities and differences between the two networks, the possible future of work and education and the possibility to make almost anything while traveling.

A cyclist’s mobile sensor hub for big data citizen science

The aim of this project is to build a mobile sensor network for monitoring of the local environment in the city of Cambridge by citizens, using modular sensor hubs that can easily be fitted on bicycles.
The sensor hub’s modularity will allow for the monitoring of parameters of interest to the citizens and communities of Cambridge. Initially, we will aim to collect spatially tagged measurements of air quality, bike traffic, and road surface quality. Such measurements are currently only taken at a few fixed points, and so may not yet accurately reflect citizens’ exposure or experiences.

To incorporate the sensor hubs into a network, we will develop a platform that can collect and analyse the sensor measurements efficiently. The local positioning system and transmission of data will rely on a SigFox wireless network, which exploits a pre-collated map of Wi-Fi networks for local positioning within Cambridge. This will minimise energy consumption during data transfer, and function independently of power-intensive positioning methods such as GPS. To further prolong device longevity, and reduce battery costs, we are interfacing the sensor to a dynamo-like energy-harvesting device.

By enabling citizens to assemble and use the sensor hubs, as well as access the analysed data, this project will bring the world of science closer to the community and promote engagement with the issues relating to the quality of the local environment. In order to involve the largest possible number of citizens in the project, we aim for the hub to be easy-to-build and accompanied by a comprehensible instruction booklet. To further incentivise citizens to become involved, we will attempt to incorporate an anti-theft bike alarm system into the device.

Meetup - Open Constructions: What's next?
Limited Capacity filling up

Maria Alejandra ROJAS (Design Morphine)

Manufacturing tools have allowed architects and designers in different fields to fabricate, prototype and build complex geometries. These tools have created an easier transition from the digital spectrum into a tangible materiality. There is a wide variety of innovative design-build research utilising robotic arms to build pavilions, quadcopters to weave structures and 3D printers to print concrete houses. However, are these tools scalable? Could larger structures be built utilising any of these tools? This talk challenges the existing fabrication tools utilized in architecture by questioning its feasibility for large-scale construction.

Ioana VALERO (CivicWise)

Today we can make our own furniture or create a collective garden ourselves. It would be great to go further and get to make our own house. But, is it possible to produce a quality housing from a bottom-up approach? Open Source Design tools are making design accessible to a larger public. In this sense, Habitat Fabrik App can be used to design your own house, optimize the design and facilitate the communication with architects.

Nancy OTTAVIANO (Quatorze)

As the world knows strong motions of populations, how may we change the ways of welcoming people in European metropolises and capital cities? The project IMBY, meaning In My Back Yard, proposes to unveil the existing civilian will of help toward refugees by setting tiny houses in private family gardens. The tiny houses are agile and flexible architectures to welcome refugees in cities. Aiming at an agile and resilient city, Quatorze promotes and develops social and solidarity architectures. We explore ways of doing things together: co-design and co-construction. Imby is becoming a reality through a progressive and iterative process which started thanks to an international architectural competition. After setting the concept, a network of partners enabled our team to build the first prototype. Later, mixing public funding and crowdfunding the prototype was changed and adapted to be set as a home located in a garden in Montreuil. Inhabited for few months this first piece of architecture deeply interlaces with social workers involvement. Imby is a transitory housing, from 3 to up to 12 months, leading to an eased autonomy in hosts countries. Within the next two years, 5 tiny houses will be installed in the Ile-de-France region.

Construction and robots : a short insight

Which robotics for construction? What a story about robots up to present? What are the permeabilities between the classical industry and the construction sector, still new to the subject and late in term of automatization? What educational and material resources have been made available on this subject in the teaching of future engineers, architects and designers? What are the productions that allow to glimpse the construction techniques of tomorrow's city? What research exist in this sector?

Meetup - Space Ecologies
Limited Capacity seats available

Space Ecologies: Roscosmoe
The worm that wanted to go into space

A project by Xavier Bailly, Ewen Chardronnet, Špela Petrič and Miha Turšič. The Roscosmoe project is supported by the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts, the Russian space agency Roscosmos, the M3 laboratory of the Roscoff Biological Station (CNRS-Sorbonne Universities), the Federation - Open Space Makers initiative of CNES, the Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation and the PING Association (Nantes).

If we want to establish our presence outside our planet, we will not be able to do it with space technologies alone. We will only succeed if we consider space ecologies.

Roscosmoe is an art & science project exploring the notions of spatial ecology and the study of life and evolution of life in terms of conditions of varying gravity. Since humanity has emerged from its omni-gravitational environmental framework, we seek to understand our existence through examples in the non-human environments surrounding us. The most dominant gravitational manifestation in our environment is the tides that occur under the effect of sea level change as a function of lunar cycles. The living entities that inhabit this marginal area between the sea and the land have developed exceptional gravitational strategies that help them survive. In order to understand some of the fundamental conditions of our gravitational existence, the Roscosmoe project takes on board the Symsagitifera roscoffensis, a marine worm, an exceptional animal-plant from the Breton coast, for field research, and in particular towards outer space. atmospheric. S. roscoffensis has capabilities that can be described as "extra-terrestrial": regeneration of organs (including the brain), symbiotic coexistence with algae in its body that provide all its metabolic requirements through photosynthesis, a special gyroscopic organ for navigating high tides. S. roscoffensis also exhibits similar behavior in laboratory environments. Such behavior can be used as a comparative model to observe the influence of the environment on the body. It was not us who chose to send the worm into space, it is the worm that chose us to help him carry out this journey.

The meet-up will address the open hardware development of a module for the study of S. roscoffensis in the International Space Station and a test clinostat (Random Positioning Machine) under development at the Fab Lab Platform C in Nantes in partnership with the Federation - Open Space Makers initiative of the National Center for Space Studies (CNES), the Waag (Netherlands) and the Delak Institute (Slovenia).

Workshop - Design principles for open source futur of food plateform
Limited Capacity seats available

Open-source communities has proven to be a very effective way to innovate and gain adoption in a short time. But building and sustaining open-source communities is not easy. How do we build momentum? Ensure quality? And create ownership for the community to self-sustain?

The Danish Design Center and Growstack.org invite you to take part in developing design principles for open source community-based innovation. At the workshop we invite everyone to share knowledge and best practice when we facilitate a hands-on session, where we co-create a set of principles for community-based innovation by asking how to:
  • Mobilize and lead a community
  • Ensure quality in a community-based project
  • Assign responsibilities and roles in the community
  • Align a disrtributed crowd towards a common mission
  • Ensure the right infrastructure for the community
  • Empower the co-creators to take ownership
The workshop is for everyone working with- or interested in open-source communities, who wants to share and gain knowledge. The outcome should be applicable for communities working across disciplines and industries, paving the way for successful open-source innovation.

Organizers: The Danish Design Center and Growstack.org

Julie Hjort, The Danish Design Center, is a member of The Global Fab City Initiative and Programme Directorat the Danish Design Centre. She works with design strategy inrelation to the democratization of technology, co-creation andopen innovation.

MAKE SMTHNG - How makers can help save the planet.

In 2017 Greenpeace, partnered with Shareable, Fashion Revolution and thousands of makers, repairers, chefs, designers, influencers and community spaces around the world to hold the world’s first ever MAKE SMTHING Week. The objective? Create a yearly international festival of making to challenge the consumerist culture that is destroying our planet, has cut quality time spent with family and friends and replaced skills and resourcefulness with shopping.

For the first edition of MAKE SMTHNG Week more than 15,000 people took part in almost 200 events in cities across 33 countries and 6 continents. There were upcycling workshops, urban agriculture courses, homemade cosmetics classes, electronics repair spaces, lectures and even a demonstration on how to make food waste smoothies!

A now annual event, MAKE SMTHING Week aims to create a unique social experience to bring people together to learn from, exchange and interact with their role models and people in their communities as well as offering practical, easy first steps on how to “MAKE SMTHNG - buy nothing”.

We believe that together we can take actions and find solutions to step out of this wasteful model of unsustainable over-consumption and give our beautiful planet a break. Instead of focusing on what’s wrong with the system we are building a new one  - inspiring people to make the most of what we already own by sharing, caring for and repairing our goods and through making and doing it ourselves, transform them into something new and awesome – together!

Build on the success of 2017, the next challenge for MAKE SMTHNG Week will be to see how we can help strengthen the social fabric of our cities, bringing together a wide array of allies, experts, communities and grassroots initiatives to enable networking, skill exchange and new relationships. We will also be asking the question of how through creative action and courageous activism we can to ensure a lasting shift in our consumerist society through longer-term political change.

We believe the Fab City Summit is the perfect opportunity to share the learnings and vision of this project with a community of like-minded, innovative people working together to create a new model and find solutions to create more sustainable, healthier and happier cities. This is also a chance to bridge the gap between innovation, smart cities, and social change.

Design for transformation - Revolution through collaboration

Fab City promises a new urban model where citizens are empowered to master their own destiny. It aims to enable the development of resilient and sustainable cities and city life. Though once we realize that the major part of current workforce was born, raised and educated in a non-digital world and still remembers what it was like to not be connected, we understand that despite our good intentions we are an inherent part of the old systems we try to change. So where do we start? What first steps can we take? How do we How do we enable ourselves to not become victims of new systems again but take ownership over them? How do we create a movement? Since ten years Waag (1994) is home to Fab Lab Amsterdam. Waag operates at the intersection of science, technology, and the arts, focusing on technology as an instrument of social change, and guided by the values of fairness, openness, and inclusivity. Karen will share key insights on how to get things moving comming from one basic principle: revolution comes through collaboration.

Open Design

What could a global community of designers, engineers, makers, technologists and other creative problem solvers achieve, if open and distributed collaboration on design and hardware were as streamlined as it is for software?

At Wikifactory, we’ve been thinking about how to take proven collaboration methodologies from the open source software world (version controlled files and documentation, contribution logs, issue tracking etc) and contextualise them to the process of designing and rapidly prototyping products.

Join us for a quick sneak peek of our platform, and a discussion around the premise, "the circular economy starts with [open] product design".

Julie Colin , CivicWise
Glocal Fab

The use of numerical control machines (CNC) in woodworking, allowing the production of wooden elements starting from vectorized drawings, has been a major breakthrough in carpentry field.
The digitalization of machinery opens many possibilities: sharing plans through the Internet, collaborating online in the development of models, producing models in any place disposing of the machinery.

Beyond the technical aspects, a cultural transformation is underway, seeking to better grasp these new opportunities: self-organised laboratories, exchanging experiences communities, open design networks, innovative regulations, etc. However, it is still difficult to address this transformation in all FabLabs and training centers, due to a lack of tools and specific methodologies.

The aim of Glocal Fab is to promote knowledge exchange and methods development in order to boost the ongoing cultural transformation in the digital woodworking environment.

Glocal Fab is promoting the creation a Pedagogical Support Guide for collaborative work. The network is also developing an European Web Platform for students of woodworking with CNC machinery.

In this context, the CivicWise international network acts as the connecting agent and puts together a strategic association of organizations with different experiences and capabilities, all of them being involved in different aspects of cultural innovation.

This talk is about the theory "Pollution it's not existing, it's a new a mindset", so we can build new solutions from this theory. I show my experience with "Toulouse Clean UP", a project who transforms plastic river pollution in a virtuous circle to protect the ocean.

Jonathan KELLER, La Paillasse, Co-Founder
Biodesign in the city

At a time when territories and habitable spaces are changing, it is necessary to explore new modes of production that are simpler, easily duplicable and sustainable. By using biology as a technology and process, it is now possible to transform waste into everyday objects, on a habitat or neighborhood scale. What applications can we imagine? What ethical and legal issues can these processes emerge? Cross dialogue between design, biology, and law.

Mariana DOMINGUEZ PEÑALVA, Project Fungus Sapiens by MĀTṚIKĀ, CEO
FUNGI (Mushrooms)
The cornerstone of innovative solutions.

We have less than 30 years to revert waste and exhaustion of fossil resources, pollution, deforestation, depletion of biodiversity, ensure food autonomy & energy for the increasing population. This sound like mission impossible right? But believe it or not, makers and scientist around the world are finding solutions in FUNGI to shape the future otherly. 
This astonishing organisms colonized the earth millions of year ago, and today they are the cornerstone of innovation.
Imagine a future where objects can be grown, instead of manufactured. Cigarette butts may become floating devices, shoes made out of discarded food and agro-waste may turn into super foods, all this can be possible thanks to mushrooms.

How to co-design DIY Healthcare solution with users - Made4You project

One of the most interesting areas a Fab Lab can explore is assistive technology. It is also a perfect example of products that could (and very often should) be produced locally, customized, with the user. For the last three years, we co-designed solution with people with disabilities and their caregivers, with doctors and therapists, and we developed several solutions that were not available on the market. We brought this experience into the European project "Made4You" that aims to develop a platform to collect and share DIY solutions for healthcare. During the next three years, three Fab Labs (in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Milan) will organize meetups, open-days, calls for ideas, to support local co-design groups.
To enable solutions developed locally to have an impact, Made4You focuses on how to support makers in the documentation process.
During the talk, we will share some insights on how to co-design effectively, document painlessly and organize local co-design events.

Meetup - Faire la ville « superflux » - Lier URBAIN, HUMAIN, et COMMUN.
Limited Capacity seats available

Faire la ville « superflux »
Lier URBAIN, HUMAIN, et COMMUN.

Contexte : L’objectif pour Sogaris et Quartus est d’annoncer le lancement d’une démarche de think tank sur la définition d’un nouveau concept d’offre immobilière et servicielle à destination des activités productives en ville type TPE PME PMI etc.
Des activités génératrices de flux : de personnes, de biens, de données, de savoirs, etc.

La fab City change le paradigme du développement immobilier. Dans la démarche proposée, l’immobilier ne crée pas une offre ad hoc, dont la logique sous-tend un certain nombre de problématiques urbaines : une standardisation des fonctions et des usages, une monofonctionnalité programmatique, un manque de réversibilité et d’évolutivité...

Partant de deux savoir-faire immobilier en matière de tertiaire et de logistique urbaine, notre collectif cherche à construire une réponse immobilière ancrée dans le territoire du Grand Paris, articulant voir réconciliant une diversité de fonctions productives et tertiaires, faisant le pari que cette synergie est source d’une plus-value économique, urbaine et sociale .

L’URBAIN est la première strate de cette approche. Il s’agit de définir les enjeux d’une offre visant à permettre et pérenniser le retour de fonctions productives, économiques, artisanales en cœur de métropole, en les érigeant comme des forces vives d’un fonctionnement urbain réconcilié et apaisé, et en rééquilibrant les logiques de flux qui opèrent : aux flux de transit se substitue une logique de cycles de production et de consommation.

L’HUMAIN est le deuxième strate de l’édifice.
La fabcity place l’humain au cœur de l’écosystème : viviers de nouveaux métiers et savoir faire, elle est une réponse indispensable aux problèmes sociaux et d’emploi. L’humain s’empare de son rôle d’acteur du métabolisme urbain, les métiers s’inventent et se réinventent en continu, en même temps qu’évoluent les modes de produire et de travailler, en appui sur l’innovation technique et technologique.
Les espaces de travail, qu’il soit intellectuel ou productif, doivent se se décloisonner et se repenser à l’aune de ces dynamiques.

Le COMMUN complète notre approche :
Partage, échange, fertilisation, mutualisation, coconception et coproduction...
Qu’il s’agisse de flux matériels ou immatériels, notre conviction est que la mise en commun et la mutualisation des moyens de travail génère des synergies fortes pour la viabilité des activités qui nous intéressent : mutualisation d’espaces de travail, d’outils de production, de services physiques ou numériques. Ce paradigme est déterminant pour renouveler la manière de concevoir l’immobilier d’activités en ville.

Participants : 

  • Pascal Giroud (Grand Orly Seine Bièvre et partenaire de l’Arc de l’innovation) 
  • Pierre Musseau (Ville de Paris) qui apportera sa vision « ville » sur la question des « communs »
  • Stephane Juguet (Sociologue, Antropologue)

Abboub SCHÉHÉRAZADE (Parme avocats)

Given the challenges of data, the territories must adopt a policy that ensures both their protection and compliance with the legislative and regulatory framework. Another important challenge lies in the ability to value data to produce services, to exploit them (BIM / CIM type modeling, prediction, optimization, valuation at merchant platforms, open data access to non-market applications, standards, etc.) regardless of the relationships. with operators and providers. Data governance can be understood from the point of view of the community's management of all the data of its public services because: "on the one hand, it is not always easy for local authorities to obtain from their private partners all the information relating to the services they delegate. On the other hand, the exploitation of a public contract or concession leads to the production of a growing volume of data, whatever the field concerned (water, sanitation, energy, transport, digital, etc.). ). Given this double observation and the cross-checks made possible by big data, it is more than necessary for each community to be able to use this data in order to: »not only ensure its use for its own account but also make them available to third parties (open data); "But above all to be able to drive the monitoring of the contract effectively and objectively until the end. When renewing the contract, it will be particularly useful to provide candidates with the necessary data.

Karolina MOSIADZ (Mapple)

Cities made an incredbile progress in collecting, analysing and publishing open data. However, they are still struggling to overcome technical barriers, get residents involved and measure the impact.

Lack of expertise and resources means that they capture only a fraction of potential value from data and analytics. At the same time, residents are bombarded with information they don't know how to use. 

Together with the city of Helsinki, we developed on a framework that connects disconnected data sets and uses maching learning and mobility and accessibility modelling to draw patterns and simulate future outcomes. This way, both cities and residents can use location and spatial data to make better decisions.

Juan LOPEZ-ARANGUREN, Intermediae Matadero (Ayuntamiento de Madrid)

Why was the A-Team always able to escape from where they were locked up? The improvisation and situations of exceptions that are key to a more modern and effective education fill this meaningful talk through international examples in which informal educational spaces offer inspiration for the organized and in which it is proposed that the playground become a central element for a new educational experiment project.

Caroline GOULARD (Dataveyes)

Cities are concentrating more and more citizens, to the point of becoming a new unit of power and influence. In return, they face previously unknown social, environmental, economic and political issues. The temptation is therefore great to see data as a self-fulfilling solution, where a few sensors, antennas and data centers would regulate and optimize everything. But cities of the future run the risk to turn into black boxes if we don’t create better mediations between them and us. That is why we must revisit the scheme that articulates data mining and the city of the future. This scheme must be augmented by a new reflex: make these data visible, sensitive, understandable, and manipulable by the greatest possible number of people. That is how we will keep "smart cities" from turning into "black boxes". That is how cities will provide us with new uses and new prospects.

MASTERPLAN for expert 

FORMAT: Roleplay - Each team chooses its US city or county.

> Work in 4 subgroups on 4 countries US / cities FR Each group chooses their city from a predefined list (variety and interest of the sectors, eg Textile, food, building materials, furniture ...)

"You are the municipal team in the community, your goal is to reach 10% manufacturing autonomy by 2025. The winning city will be the one that proposes the strongest and most ambitious action plan! " Everyone draws a card that defines their role, namely to defend the interests of some PP (Mayor, dir dev Eco, dir citizen mobilization, dir urban renewal, dir agriculture, etc.).

Step 1 - specify the 2/3 most strategic sectors to work on in a FabCity approach (20mn) Medium: Analysis of the FabIndex of your city + data on the territory (a map of industrial sites / wastelands / major infrastructures on the territory)

Step 2 - propose a roadmap for the territory to relocate these sectors (45 minutes), specifying:
> What would be the emblematic places in terms of location and programming?
> What roadmap to engage audiences - citizens, entrepreneurs, corporations and communities

For inspiration > generic entrepreneurship cards + criteria (open place, insertion, mix of uses etc.)

Restitution - 20 minutes -

You present in 5 minutes the project to your citizens, you must make them adhere to your program

IDEATION for all 

Each team chooses their city from a list and goes to work in a priority sector of their city. Work support: IDEA MAKER card game (forced ideation game)

>> Each team has one hour to generate the maximum idea to relocate industrial activity in its sector and select the 3 flagship actions that will base its program. The proposed ideas can be innovative places and mobilization approaches.

Tangible Data
Limited Capacity seats available

The best way to think about how can advanced technologies help us in the future, is to complement those ideas with traditional knowledge that once helped us build societies. Historically, a big part of this knowledge has been constructed through the preservation of stories and information in the form of physical objects, as a language for talking about those things communities wouldn’t have been able to talk otherwise. Is in preserving this cultural heritage in the shape of physical stories what has helped us reinforce our cultural heritage. The city of the future, with automation and biggest developments in technology being a big part of it, needs to reinforce this more than ever before, making sure that the tools we use to build and design take into consideration the expressions of our cultural life.  

This workshop is about how to translate qualitative data into physical and tangible pieces. We will be working with individual and collective narratives to design patterns that could then be translate into a physical weaving piece. We will tell and record cultural stories, analyze the audio using JavaScript and translate that data into a physical weaving piece people can take home. With this, we will be turning intangible expressions into physical objects to reflect on the importance of materials, designs and the language we can create just by using patterns.

The patterns created will also reflect of how cities are being build, combining different patterns that together create bigger ones. At the same time, the logic behind weaving, intertwining two pieces of materials to form a new shape, is also the base of how materials are used to construct new ones. In this case, this workshop will shed light on the language expressed by materials and its designs, and how together can create meaning, just as how the patterns inside a city or a space can also create different meaning for people.  

This is a new version of previous workshops I’ve been developing in the last year. By combining crafting with digital tools, we are able to create a new learning approach and a new way of understanding how to humanize our digital creations through handcrafting. People will learn the basics of weaving while the basics of how to translate stories into digital design that could then be applied to other surfaces and materials, and to reflect of how data stored in physical objects is a medium for expression we need to keep using in the future.

Limited Capacity filling up

In this workshop, participants will be invited to design and make new matrials for a circular economy; plastics made from algae, starch and proteins; composites made from natural fibers, common minerals, and clays.  

We are used to thinking about material supply chains as large scale and industrial, and are taught that knowledge about materials is the domain of polymer chemists and professional engineers.  But what if anyone, anywhere, could participate in making materials with nothing more than the tools inside their kitchen and the matter on their doorstepfrom? 

We will also explore the emerging design space that surrounds these materials, and introduce a materials-driven design approach that harnesses the strength and resilience found in nature to grow nested material systems using life-friendly chemistry and locally abundant nutrients.

Materiom is an international group of artists, designers and engineers. Our mission is to enable everyone, everywhere to participate in the next generation of circular materials by publishing an open source library of materials made from locally abundant ingredients.

Workshop - Sensing and measuring pollutants in the atmosphere’s boundary layer with Aerocene Explorer
Limited Capacity seats available

In this practical workshop participants will become familiar with the Aerocene Explorer backpacks, and learn how to fly emissions-free tethered flights. Do note, Aerocene flights are by definition weather dependent and might not follow the exact schedule. Once the Sun is out, Aerocene naturally adjusts, heading out to sense the atmosphere without temporal limitations!

The Aerocene Explorer is a tethered-flight starter kit, which enables anyone to launch their own Aerocene sculpture and start exploring the skies. Using Do-It-Together (DIT) techniques, Aerocene changes how people investigate environmental, social and political questions. The Aerocene Explorer engages participants in a thinking-through-making activity, stimulating imagination and creativity, and imparting information about solar balloon flight, thermodynamic physics, meteorological science, and art practices. The Aerocene Explorer is currently being tested and developed by a global community of artists, geographers, philosophers, thinkers, speculative scientists, explorers, balloonists, technologists and other enthusiasts.


We will attach to the Explorer different payload options built during previous workshops, trying various sensors:
  • POLLUTION: An environmental monitor that measures the amount of particles in the atmosphere built with a cheap sensor that uses laser technology
  • LIFE IN THE AIR: A set of parachuting insect traps for taking multiple samples e.g. at different altitudes, areas or times of day
  • WEATHER: altitude-temperature-pressure-humidity
  • SIGNATURES: motion tracker to create signatures in the air towards independence from fossil fuels
  • MAPPING: aerial pictures and videos
  • INFRASOUND: infrasound detection
  • RADIO TRANSMISSION: including mesh network

The workshop is hosted by Aerocene community members Sasha Engelmann, Julieta Arancio, Tomás Saraceno, Erik Vogler and Joaquin Ezcurra.

Social Economy + Technology. Local Production: Developing Social Economy SMEs supported by a Fab Lab

IDIT Fab Lab Puebla has been working in developing local production capabilities through the incubation of Social economy initiatives in Puebla Municipality.

Based in the hypothesis that if a social economy enterprise in the base of the pyramid has access to technology, its probability of success augments exponentially and that if one supports local social economy SMEs will be capable of solving local problems with local capabilities and global knowledge and with a very low cost for every work post generated.

With this in mind, we developed a Social economy + Technology model and applied it in Puebla Municipality in ten neighborhoods with high margination and violence.
Last year we helped 296 initiatives, this year we are working with 312 enterprises with very high success parameters.

Due to Puebla’s success, we started a program in eight states in Mexico working with young individuals in risk of violence supported by local and international funds, especially in areas of low income and high violence.

Raphaele BIDAULT-WADDINGTON, LIID Future Lab
A resilient urban future between the 3rd and 4th industrial revolutions.

FabCities are on their way, somewhere between the 3rd and 4th industrial revolutions; will they succeed? The 3rd revolution announced by Jeremy Rifkins in 2011 expects fablabs and makers to take the lead toward a radical transition, while the 4th revolution, announced by Klaus Schwab at the World Economic Forum in 2016, forcasts the transformation of regular factories within the capitalistic model. 
Via a series of future research achieved at LIID Future Lab in the recent years, we will see how pivotal have become the efficiency of collaborative networks and constellations, the urban scale, the mobilization of hybrid communities, and the design on new economic models.  This session will be an occasion to check and discuss with the audience how ready we are.
Projects mentioned: "Future of Factories and Fabrication" (IHEST, Ministère de la Recherche, Paris, 2017-18); "Future of urban resilience" and "The rising city, future of social and urban innovation" (Peclers Future Trend, 2017-18); "the soft-power of creative labs" (GDI Future Institute, Zurich, 2018); "Paris Galaxies, a future for the Greater Paris" (Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne University, Paris College of Art, Paris 2030 Program, 2008-2017) including "Paris Ars Universalis, scenario fiction d'un futur Grand Paris" (Collection Avant-Garde, L'Harmattan, 2017, 190p), a design-fiction experiment staging various forms of collaborative platforms to make the Greater Paris.

FabCity Skills Development and Pathway Learning with Digital Badges

Digital badges can be used to evaluate, communicate and structure skills and learning. Concretely, at the technical level, a digital badge is a single web page that contains all the information (metadata) concerning the development of a skill or an achievement. There is the standard "Open Badges" that can carry a badge from one platform to another. To prototype solutions, we need to digitize skills development and recognition with digital badges in the circular economy and Fabcity movement. This technological usage can also synchronize learning pathways across organizations in new workforce needs and challenge new collars skills development.

Aiwen YIN, Phi
Designing the social in energy cooperative

Phi is an A.I. facilitated clean-energy platform for collaborative microgrid management, P2P energy trading and incentivizing collective energy prosumption behaviors via crypto-tokens.

Phi’s core design is centered around building up a transparent collaborative environment for community building. It creates a playful and friendly microgrid simulation environment where users can experiment with their own versions of community microgrid, with information and design assistance by an intelligent chatbot. The simulations can be submitted to the community for votes, and be executed with community funds when selected.

Part of the community fund is supported by Phi coin and local tokens. Phi not only rewards Phi coin to users who invest clean energy system (by purchasing infrastructures, producing clean energy or pledging a community proposal) but also allows users to design their own tokens to encourage their communities to develop a more desirable energy strategy (such as a token that rewards energy saving). All of these process will be done in the community, as well as connecting to maintenance, post local tasks and more.

The simulation environment, collaborative community, and token rewards make a strong set of pillars to facilitate community activities, and create a strong sense of collectivism — because that is what a fair, decentralized and balanced ecosystem would need, that everyone must feel they are part of the action.

Xavier BLOT, Energy Entrepreneur
On the road to decentralized energy organizations

Fab Cities need to lead the way toward a zero-carbon society. To pave this path, clean technologies will not be sufficient. While their penetration is increasing, there are not replacing unsustainable solutions fast enough.
 
Our energy system is made of complex connections between centralized and decentralized organizations. Cities are struggling to engage the energy transition because of complexes issue relating regulations, business model, public-private collaborations, and raising awareness of their citizens. But if we really want to build a better future, we must take all that components into account.
 
For cities’ and citizens’ future, we need to work on the design of local energy organizations able to welcome solutions in a more inclusive way, involving public bodies, privates parties and inhabitants. Numerous examples rose over the years (microgrids, cooperatives, local energy agencies, etc.) with innovative business and governance model.
 
Through that presentation, we’ll introduce what’s at stack in the field to achieve sustainable and resilient results. We’ll highlight the role of each actor and what are the main models to make them collaborate on the long term. Depending on the goal of the decentralized energy system (production, distribution, etc.), different organizations can be design. These could be fostered by smart token design. Finally first approaches will be proposed with key elements of success to engage the transition.

Making Sustainable Cities

Smart City developments are causing many technologies and solutions to integrate with convergence seen across with many resource areas including energy, water, sanitation, and other essential services. The public sector tries to deliver better services through fewer resources while businesses and citizens demand more.

This has driven governments to focus on building smarter and more sustainable cities, which are powered by technologies that can enable them. As makers, how can we as a community add value to the process of making the future cities more sustainable?

While Bhutan’s small size makes it difficult to attract foreign companies, it´s fertile ground for homegrown innovation. Over last three years we have gone all the way through this Fabcity Bhutan development journey laid out by Fabcity Bhutan team, the policy advocacy and technical inputs have been accompanied with intensive discussions at all levels from Prime Minister of Bhutan to farmers and school children’s to promote development pathways based on how the new digital technologies enable ordinary Bhutanese citizens to organize their mutual interactions so that they can develop their own social innovations. The establishment of flagship Fabrication laboratory of Bhutan (Fablab Bhutan) in 2017 is one such important milestones.

The future of food is actually in your hands.

It's beyond discussion that we need alternative solutions for how our food system works. What most people don't realise is that making a difference in this field is not reserved for a select few. With todays community-driven collaborative methods and open technology, anyone can make hands-on impact on the future of food.

Growstack is an open-source community project that removes barriers for urban food production, starting with vertical farming. 
It’s all about ensuring high food quality, resource efficiency and our future food security while democratising the access to smarter and more controlled ways of producing food.

We are collecting and opening up access to a modular technology stack while sharing the needed hands-on knowledge, which in turn works as a platform for kickstarting local food production in cities. Additionally, we are kickstarting new urban vertical farming operations, starting from Copenhagen, in order to make a flexible blueprint for how to organise local foodtech cooperatives and make decentralised urban food production happen in an economically viable way.

This is all made possible by gathering a proactive open-source community with diverse skillsets and backgrounds around co-building our future food system.

Join the session to find out how YOU can get started in your own city right now.

TreeD - Digital Tree | From standarized to customized nutrition

TreeD | DIGITAL TREE | Revolutionary proposal focused on eradicating malnutrition in developing countries, especially for children from 0-7 years old, promoting sustainable agro and environment protection through a platform for customized nutrition and 3D printing for nutrients.

1. THE CHALLENGE | “We need a profound reform of the world agrarian and food system if we want to nourish the 815 million hungry people that currently exist on the planet and the two billion additional people who will live in the year 2050. "(SDG 2. UN, 2015). The presence of malnutrition becomes the enemy in the fight against extreme poverty and social exclusion, inheriting the marginality in families with little access to quality food. It is well known that a child who has grown up in malnutrition has few opportunities to develop physically and intellectually, affecting their own growth as a citizen in a globalized and competitive society. Main causes are:
A. STANDARDIZED NUTRITION | Traditional child nutrition programs use standardized products without taking into account the specific requirements of each child. It causes a poor absorption of vitamins in the body.
B. LOGISTIC COSTS | The waste rate in agro products are more than 60% because of the logistic process. Farmers have little capacity to negotiate with intermediaries, because their products are perishable and must be sold in a short time, which increases poverty in the production areas and increases the costs of the products in the market.
C. IMPACT ON THE ENVIRONMENT | the high demand for certain products generates over-exploitation of agricultural land and constant pressure on natural areas, such as the case of the Amazon, where more than 20% of the forests have been depredated for livestock and agricultural purposes.

2. THE OPPORTUNITY | From standarized to customized nutrition | Hypothesis: Artificial Intelligence, Digital Manufacturing, and Global networks can help to address the global challenge of "End hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture" SDG 2. UN, 2015.  How? Through the Personalized Made at Home Manufacture of vitamin supplements, we can impact both the improvement of the nutritional quality of people (especially mothers and children between 0-7 years old), decrease cost of logistics and distributions, the improvement of the farmers production and the access to global market for farmers and the development of a sustained agriculture that benefits the ecosystems at high biodiversity areas.

Meetup - Micro-Factories
Limited Capacity seats available

Quentin IPREX-GARCIA, TechBakery.co
Consumer Electronics, from mass industrialisation in China to distributed micro-factories in each city.

I spend some years designing and industrializing consumer electronic products for different companies, traveling between China and France. For both startups and bigger companies and for the whole products I worked on, there is three common points: you need lots of time between your product is designed and your product is in the hand of the user, you need lots of money to advance your custom toolings & your stock, and you need to manufacture lots of identical design to cost products to be profitable, and everything quite far from your user.
So what … you need to find private funding, you can only iterate once a year on your product, personalization or just color versioning is painful, you really need to sell it to a maximum of people, and finally, as soon as there is a problem or that the product is no more used it just go to bin, because the product is so designed to cost that it is hard to fix and to reuse some parts.
Today with TechBakery we try to draw an alternative to this classical industrial system. We are designing a micro-factory, for distributed mass production of consumer electronics. Think about it … a local business in each city to manufacture and sell on demand, only the products you need, from tons of different designer, makers or companies. There are 3 main goals of this project:
-    Allow use and re-use of local materials, as much for raw materials, as for the electronic functional modules which from a product can be replaced or reused in another.
-    Bring back the product manufacturing near the final user and allow him to see, personalize and understand his product, and ease the maintenance and product end of life.
-    Allow designers, makers, startups or bigger companies to develop and distribute a consumer electronic product with as much flexibility as the development of an application.
So let me bring you in a trip from the classical way of consumer electronics production to the future that we are developing, where next to your favorite bakery, at the corner of the street, you can get manufactured the last Bluetooth speaker or a connected ambient light for your home.

Julien VAISSIERES, BATCHW LTD
Fab City London and Batch Manufacturing

During this talk, we’ll be showing how Batch.works factory is integrated into the city along with FabCity London initiative. The talk will be shared between Julien Vaissieres from Batch.works and Nat Hunter from Fab City London

Fab City London (FCL) is the UK branch of the Fab City Global Initiative, co-founded and led by Liz Corbin, Nat Hunter, Gareth Owen Lloyd and James Tooze in 2018, and supported by associates and partners from across London.

The aim of FCL is to function as a social impact enterprise for developing and embedding decentralised, civic-led modes of production across the urban realm. Within this agenda is the exploration of new approaches to design, production and consumption that transition society toward a circular economy.

The ambition is to work with diverse London communities to develop technologies, strategies and infrastructures that can be leveraged by all at whatever scale of enterprise, generating initiatives that benefit from a mix of geographical locations and expertise.

BATCH.WORKS founded by Julien Vaissieres make 3D printed consumer products part of people’s everyday lives. We believe in making the right product for the right person, in the right place; using the latest technology to make local design and manufacturing globally available.

3D printing has become increasingly popular over the last few years.
At Batch. Works, we use this technology to produce at a batch scale, working with local makers to make on demand, eliminating supply chain waste.

Batch manufacturing also enables us to be responsive to consumer concerns. In response to growing awareness of plastic waste, we source environmentally responsible material, and all our plastic is biodegradable.

TechShop, 2 Years Later

TechShop - Ateliers Leroy Merlin launched its first space in France in November 2015. Since then, we opened 2 new locations, build a strong community of makers and doers, ran thousands of classes and events, spend hours taking care of our machines and sharing technical and creative knowledge.

In this talk, we want to share what we learned in running a maker space in the city, show urban projects born in the shop from our members, and share how a maker space like TechShop can help shape the future of creation and local innovation in building social and environmental change.

A Rural Biennale and ideas of Autonomous Ruralism
Limited Capacity seats available

The disruptive developments of dispersed infrastructure frames a moment in time where we can fundamentally reconceive of how we make, fund, and even conceptualize the world that surrounds us and how we engage with the possibilities of a new Autonomous Ruralism

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.

Workshop - Agile and flexible architectures for welcoming host cities
Limited Capacity seats available

As the world knows strong motions of populations, how may we change the ways of welcoming people in European metropolises and capital cities? The project IMBY, meaning In My Back Yard, proposes to unveil the existing civilian will of help toward refugees by setting tiny houses in private family gardens. The tiny houses are agile and flexible architectures to welcome refugees in cities. Aiming at an agile and resilient city, Quatorze promotes and develops social and solidarity architectures. We explore ways of doing things together: co-design and co-construction. Imby is becoming a reality through a progressive and iterative process which started thanks to an international architectural competition. After setting the concept, a network of partners enabled our team to build the first prototype. Later, mixing public funding and crowdfunding the prototype was changed and adapted to be set as a home located in a garden in Montreuil. Inhabited for few months this first piece of architecture deeply interlaces with social workers involvement. Imby is a transitory housing, from 3 to up to 12 months, leading to an eased autonomy in hosts countries. Within the next two years, 5 tiny houses will be installed in the Ile-de-France region.

In its process, Imby integrates third country nationals via community building and volunteering with locals around the topic of housing, which implies building architectural structures as well as improving living conditions. Putting together architectural and social aspects, Imby changes the mindset of hospitality not by education, but by authentic working experience and lived community with the people affected. Imby promotes volunteering and increases the knowledge about facilitation of workshops between migrants and locals. The setting of opening construction times strengthen the intercultural competence for the younger generation in EU and eases the tensions about housing/living space among refugees and other social (local) groups. As an outcome, Imby raises expertise in network building and empowers voluntaries or community activists to tackle integration with inclusive architecture. Furthermore, it raises expertise on the integration of refugees through inclusive and community-based social construction initiatives. Imby shows to local politicians and administrations how to involve grassroots initiatives into integration, housing policies, and urban policies. This project, its communication, and its developments to come, all raise awareness about hospitality and the importance of the involvement of the EU citizens.

Yet, at the moment, Imby is suited for one type of hosting city: a not so dense piece of the metropolis, a place with gardens and houses rather than housing blocks. To multiply this type of co-planning, co-(re)building, co-living projects with refugees in Europe we are now working on new scenarios of co-planned answers. The talk will present the process, overall and specific objectives of Imby ; its outcomes and impacts; its target groups and partners.

The workshop will be a milestone and one of its undergoing development: creating a catalog of transferable housing methods that can be adapted for successful migrant integration in other situations in Europe.

White Paper Preview – Fabcity Summit

RFFLabs - French Network of Fablabs - aims to “Assemble, Represent, Support, Communicate and
Mutualize” the structures (and their resources) part of the Fablab movement in France. Founded
in January 2016, this association brings together Fablabs but also companies, hackerspaces and
individuals committed towards this movement and willing to facilitate collective action and joint
regulation in the maker / innovation / teaching / open science field.

As part of its missions, RFFLabs, through its Scientific Council, has initiated one year ago a
major survey in order (1) to present an inventory of these emerging experiments in France, (2) to
point out the main specificities, the strengths and weaknesses of the network’s members and (3)
to help them figure out ways to deal collectively with the common issues they need to confront.
This survey is now complete and will lead to the publication of a White Paper in autumn 2018.
We will disclose here in preview some pre-results of this survey.

Beyond this snapshot, this survey intends to lay the foundations for a protocol to be replicated at
regular intervals, engaging the cooperation of network members, academics and professionals to
maintain a regular watch on this thematic and its issues in France.

Hoelig LE CLAINCHE, TechShop
Open a MakerSpace in private companies

The Fab Lab and open-source movement disrupted the way we conceive products, the way we prototype them, and the way we manage the after-sales.
Opening a MakerSpace in a product-making company is becoming more and more common. The benefits being a collision zone for every people in a company ( a place where marketing meets engineering meets accountancy), a reduced "time to market", a rise in patenting, and a return from computer to object, to a product.
In order to succeed this kind of project, it's more than just opening a meeting-room and putting 3D printers in it. You need to make it a global strategy, to select machines, place, and, more importantly, people that fit your goals.
We'll go through from the "why" open a makerspace in private companies, to the usuals mistakes, and the recruitments keys for a good fab-manager.

The presentation would be based on the 7 openings of MakerSpaces by TechShop Les Ateliers Leroy Merlin those last 3 years, from 250m² in a company headquarters to a 180m² in a public place, to a 2400m² in the center of Paris. We continue to help private companies and cities to open MakerSpaces on their own names and have experienced several uses of those places.

Indigenous Peoples and a Sustainable Global Economy: Tunica Brigadier at the Portage de la Croix

Nearly a century prior to the Louisiana Purchase, our Tunica Nation arrived at the confluence of the Mississippi and Red Rivers. This geographic crossroads signified a period of economic diplomacy with the emergent French colony. Cahura-Joligo, titled “Brigadier of the Red Armies,” was recognized as quite rich in material wealth. Under his leadership, the Tunica cultivated nation-to-nation relationships through accommodation while remaining socially, culturally, and ceremonially distinct.

As we observe the New Orleans Tricentennial, there are many challenges facing a Mississippi Delta Region such as digital disparities, and coastal erosion coupled with rising sea levels that create climate change refugee communities. As the language and culture Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana reawakens in the 21st century, sustainable development through ancestral and traditional ecological knowledge is amplified through the use of digital technologies.

This talk will explore the historical role of Indigenous nations in the global economy. We will then discuss the fundamental importance of Indigenous consultation and participation in global sustainable development.

https://www.facebook.com/events/995221253971385/?active_tab=about

[FR]
En cette veille de fête nationale, allmecen et Fab City Grand Paris s'associent pour célebrer l'ouverture au grand public de la 3ème édition du Fab City Summit ! 

Pour cette occasion, artistes émergeant (comme Tyve, Massian ou To Van Kao) ainsi que labels influents et prometteurs (tels que Beau Mot Plage, Coquelicot Records et 13m2) graviteront autours du maître de cérémonie : Chris Carrier.

Chris Carrier fait partie de ces rares artistes qui ont une qualité énorme et qui ne cherchent pas à rendre leur nom plus grand que la musique elle-même. Il sort son premier EP en 1994, et a donc plus de 20 ans de carrière à son actif en tant que producteur et DJ, avec un énorme catalogue de sorties. Avec tout cela dans son casier, Carrier continue sans cesse de créer de plus en plus de pépites et est considéré comme l'un des producteurs les plus prolifiques et doués d'aujourd'hui.

Right before our national day, allmecen and Fab City Grand Paris join forces to celebrate the opening of the Fab City Summit!

For this occasion, emerging artists (such as Tyve, Massian or To Van Kao) as well as influential and promising labels (such as Beau Mot Plage, Coquelicot Records and 13m2) will be playing along with the master of ceremonies: Chris Carrier.

Chris Carrier is one of those rare kinds of artists that have an omnipresent quality and yet do not seek to make their name bigger than the music itself. You may not know it but there is a 99% chance you have experienced some dancefloor-based elation at the hands of the Parisian maestro. Releasing his first EP in 1994, he has over 20 years under his belt as a producer and DJ, with a huge back catalogue of releases. With all of that in his locker, Carrier remains ardent in his quest to create more and more classic material and is revered as one of the most prolific and gifted producers around today.
