Nanotourism

Page 1

nanotourism is a new, constructed term describing a creative critique to the current environmental, social and economic downsides of conventional tourism, as a participatory, locally oriented, bottom-up alternative. Defining nanotourism runs twofold:



... by finding learning Re:cycled formerand florist shop from Ciklama is existing examples and by identifying and now Rajzefiber biro creating new site-specific experiences. It operates as a social tool to stimulate mutual interaction between provider and user by co-creation or exchange of knowledge. It is not about scale, but is a projected ability to construct responsible experiences from the bottom-up, using local resources. Nanotourism is beyond tourism, it is more an attitude to improve specific everyday environments and to open up project space new local economies. Involve, participate and become a nanotourist everywhere, even in your own city, town, street or home! The term tourist is increasingly used pejoratively, to imply a shallow interest in the cultures or environments. No one wants to be a tourist any more, but prefers to be a traveller, passenger, guest... Instead of superficial project space one-way observation, one participates, exchanges or co-creates in a two-way relationship and evolves to nanotourist. tourism provider

Hacking the definition of Critical Design from Anthony Dunne & Fiona Raby by replacing critical design with nanotourism and design with tourism: What is nanotourism? Nanotourism uses speculative design proposals to challenge narrow assumptions, preconceptions and givens about the role tourism play in everyday life. It is more of an attitude than anything else, a position rather than a method. There are many people doing this who have never heard of the term nanotourism modular system and who have their own way of describing what they do. Naming it nanotourism is simply a useful way of making this activity more visible and subject to discussion and debate. Nanotourism is critical, but primarily bottom-up. Therefore it works as an association to nanotechnology as organisation of matter at the atomic and scenario: supper / workshop molecular scale, essentially by bottomup construction method. Pre-fix nano in nanotourism implies bottom-up processes, not visible to a human eye, as new operational models of tourism. This publication is a documentation of the collaborative creative research process of BIO50 nanotourism team. It is an open collection of found existing experiences and created case-studies scenario: concert / show promoting nanotourism as a social, responsible, participatory alternative. 24 th Biennial of design, Ljubljana Museum of Architecture and Design

nanotouriSm rESEarCH proCESS After decades of a booming tourism industry with wide impact on territories and economies all over the world, are there smaller-scale, nonintrusive ways of tourism? Nanotourism was in a process of working theory during bio50. The international team of experts, designers and architects was intensely defining the term and notion of nanotourism, first as part of a larger collaborative of the Biennial and then during the aa Visiting School Slovenia 2014. What is the challenge of nanotourism? How can nanotourism improve the world? These initial questions activated the systematic research process of defining nanotourism: by finding and learning from existing examples and by identifying new potentials of nanotourism on several sites in the region and creating new experiences though a set of case studies. Driven by Participatory Action Research principles they offer open source models of nanotourism establishing new local economies and offering visitors and locals to deepen their knowledge, experience and understanding of the world. www.nanotourism.org is an open research platform to share, promote and grow nanotourism as a new collective awareness. nanotourism / process: defining

KSEVT


AA VISITING SCHOOL SLOVENIA, VITANJE NANOTOURISTIC STRATEGIES Vitanje, aa Visiting School Slovenia nanotouristic strategies In July 2014, the aa Visiting School Slovenia, a three week design-buildmake programme part of Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, explored nanotouristic strategies in relation to the building and institution of ksevt, which generates 25.000 visitors per year, and Vitanje, the town of 600 inhabitants. Exhibition hotel in ksevt, Accommodation Strategies in Vitanje and Objects of Activation were three proposed topics that stimulated students to develop and test in scale 1:1 four strategic projects.

HangOut Vitanje ksevt has changed the status quo of Vitanje, but its visitors come to see the exhibition and leave right after. HangOut Vitanje responded to this issue by researching and devising alternative accommodation strategies and activities, giving ksevt visitors or local residents a reason to explore the area for a longer period of time – from some hours to several days. HangOut Vitanje proposes an intrinsic experience of renting out a bag kit with a site-specific, XL lace hammock and a map with a set of site proposals to explore. New discoveries can be noted and uploaded to the project website, where personal spots of interest can be shared. Custom

hammocks are produced by reworked traditional bobbing technique to fit specific sites and conditions. They offer a possibility of accommodation and space for activities, while all infrastructures, including the renting service, are available at ksevt. They represent an alternative to a conventional vision of a hotel. ksevt Outdoor Community The building of ksevt was planned to contain both: planetary programmes and local community cultural centre. ksevt Outdoor Community wanted ksevt to play a bigger role in the lives of Vitanje inhabitants. Analysing their needs and issues, a set of site specific socially engineered interventions were formulated in order to integrate people of Vitanje with ksevt and its assets. The team has organised all-day public event ksevt-fest, hosting football tournament with made-on-spot goulash, large scale chess board games and open air cinema evenings: kinoksevt. Active participation, of mostly younger population, at these events has clearly showed a critical need for outdoor social programmes related to ksevt. To sustain such activities, the team has equipped active participants with diy manuals and has built a series of simple, locally sourced wooden seats that foster a physical evidence and collaborative relationship between ksevt and the local community.

The exhibition took place in the multiGeneral information purpose foyer of ksevt and coincided with the final jury and exhibition opening of the aa Visiting School. Vitanje expo @ksevt has questioned the institution of ksevt, to open up to the needs of the local community. Materialising the exhibition setup the team was using semi reflecting foil to convert generic foyer lightning into spot-lights and local wooden slats, halfproducts of local saw mills, for flexible, systematically organised and integrated exhibition system.

ksevt hotel How can ksevt accommodate sleepovers? Site-specific added value to the ksevt exhibition is the experience of levitation in an environment of gravity. Team’s field of research was the transition from conventional 2d sleeping towards the experience of 3d sleeping. ksevt hotel offers two experiences. Individual, where the researcher can spend the night in ksevt by sleeping in a uniquely engineered Visual references levitation-suit, suspended in the central space of ksevt. Or collective, where a group of people can experience 3d sleeping as an extended feature of the exhibition, where a set of pyramid shaped cushions support your entire body in a custom 3d position while asleep. The concept of ksevt hotel and 3d sleeping embodies the unique program of ksevt – it fulfils the accommodation needs of the institution and furthermore upgrades already unique visitor experience.

BIO50}hotel, LJUBLJANA EXHIBITION HOTEL BIO50}hotel is a temporary hotel established at the MAO. It critically challenges tourism connected to exhibitions, in this case BIO50, by actively interfering with its curatorial approach. Nanotourists will be hosted in the museum free of charge and asked to contribute to the Biennial in return by actively participating in BIO50 events or by suggesting their own lectures, exhibitions, round tables and workshops among others. Furthermore, they take part in a 1:1 action by organizing their accommodation, repositioning, using and testing the exhibited items to confront the generic hotel room setup.

Nowadays traveling virtually and physically is a must but resources and free time are often limited. Implying an investment of money and time, tourists’ demands are often connected to possible opportunities instead of mere entertainment. BIO50}hotel is questioning the definition of tourists generally without interaction with the local community and environment by focusing on the concept of exchange. BIO50}hotel attempts to define an interactive relation between the Biennial and the visitors, considering

a mutual exchange of contents as a potential for critical interpretations of the exhibition as well as a platform for multiple connections and new contents. Rather than mere cultural consumers or passive spectators BIO50}hotel guests are actively implementing the contents and interacting directly with the biennial program and exhibition according to multiple levels of participation. During the exhibition period BIO50}hotel is open to host a broad variety of participants (designers, artists, researchers, scholars, craftsmen, chefs, journalists, musicians…) local or not, who will contribute to the cultural discussion within BIO50. The guests’ events will be open to the public and documented on BIO50}hotel’s blog which will virtually store all the guests’ contributions and make them accessible for everyone. Nanotourists are encouraged to customize their accommodation space as well as question the exhibition itself tracing a collective narrative of accumulation/destruction processes. BIO50}hotel is challenging the museum as underused cultural infrastructure beyond its primary activity and time frame by proposing alternative uses during its usual closure.

OLD SChOOL ILICA, ZAGREB CO-CREATION AS NANOTOuRISM Old School Ilica is a collaborative, local craft production initiative, realized to recover the disappearing traditional crafts and local economies in its immediate environment by establishing an educational co-creation model based on knowledge and skills exchange. Participants are invited to learn-andcontribute in workshops while cocreating with local craftsmen using solely local services and their production lines. By active participation, local residents or local designers become nanotourists in their own street or city, creating in novel products, services and local economy while transforming the Ilica street identity.

Old School Ilica is initiated by a group of designers, members of an artistic organization Oaza, themselves residents of Ilica site. Old School Ilica was formulated as a reaction to their immediate environment and current disappearing cultural identity of the longest street in Zagreb. Many old craftsmen workshops and store have been suppressed under the influence of global market, whereas other spaces are left empty because they have unclear ownership relations.

Project consists of several phases. Research phase includes mapping of remaining craft and production workshops and stores, conducting talks and interviewing of the future school protagonists willing to share their professional experiences and knowledge to unveil the potentials of the site. This phase results in an online Registry of Knowledge Holders, which captures and profiles detailed description of their qualifications, set of skills and types of represented products. On the basis of this registry a collaborative educational program Old School Ilica is derived, in the form of a series of interactive workshops for interested public with the assistance of designers. The role of this sitespecific educational model is to promote specific knowledge and skills of the Illica Street craftsmen, in order to provoke stagnant city decisions with a bottomup approach to reviving city sites. In the third phase, material and immaterial results of the project will be collected and exposed under Made in Ilica headline. Longterm objective is establishing a brand and a fully functional local business model that promotes local values, knowledge and resources of the street residents. This model of nanotorism as education and co-creation could be developed in other city quarters in Croatia or abroad, consequently restoring and repositioning fragments of neighbourhoods identities.

rajzefiber biro, maribor nanotourist agency A nanotourist agency, Rajzefiber Biro was strategically established in an abandoned shop within the old city centre of Maribor. The collectively self-renovated project space operates as a multipurpose arena for exchange, performance, education and production. It provides and produces co-creative memorabilia – art-facts, made by most special local artists and craftsmen, redefining the typical souvenir. It is a melting pot, a platform that constantly researches and follows the needs of co-creators of touristic/ cultural/artistic activities. The agency avoids formality, yet provides and collects an endless all-sensual local experience of Maribor.

but also as a reaction toward many problems that the city is facing. Since the 90’s it has been characterized by high unemployment and all related social problems, depopulation, development stagnation, which amongst others resulted in many empty and underused places (stores, courtyards) located in the city centre. On the other hand there are many young (unemployed) creative people with good ideas and ambition to work and improve the current state of art. Combining both aspects the concept of the nanotouristic agency was used as a kind of urban catalyst to inhabit unused and empty spaces of the city, to promote small economies and give people a professional recognition with a possibility to work (social aspect). The team developed the concept of The project is site specific and local nanotouristic agency whose specific as it focuses on discovering untypical is informal and personalised approach location in the city, hidden, marginal to tourism. It is called Rajzefiber, sites (like courtyards, underground which means the anxiety before travel tunnels, unfinished building sites…) (eng: Travel nerves, Travel fever) and and not main touristic attractions. was derived from the German word It engages interesting and unusual ‘Reisefieber’ that was commonly used local people in terms of hosting, in Slovenia, especially near the Austrian implementation of performative-tours border, also in the City of Maribor. by locals, as well as employing most The project was developed as extremely special local artists and craftsman site specific, not only in terms of (such as Nadja Dodlek, Nataša Berk experiencing the local environment, and others).

Routine Revolution, KRaKów Reviving memoRies Routine Revolution explores a typical 1960s housing estate to find the extraordinary in the everyday. Several actions were organized within the Ugorek neighborhood: meetings, walks and workshops with the inhabitants. The aim was to find new perspectives and discover the neighborhood’s beauty. After interviewing locals to learn and absorb the history and to collect private memories of the place, a series of collages were created to sum up reminiscences, representation and common memory. One of the collages has been chosen by inhabitants and became a postcard from the estate, stimulating other residents of Krakow to perceive this area differently, and recognize its potential for a distinctive experience within their city.

where? Ugorek, Kraków, Poland –  housing estate blocks of flats from 60s. who? Residents of the housing estate. what? Inhabitants start to perceive their own space in a new way. The aim is to change their perspective, to let them notice and appreciate the everyday life and its repeatability; to find their neighborhood attractive and to find different meanings and layers of space by getting to know and exchange their memories.

Routine revolution is to explore our own neighborhood and to find the extraordinary in the everyday. We’ve chosen typical housing estate (60s.) in Kraków and decided to organize several meetings, walks and workshops with inhabitants. The aim was to find a new perspective. We invited residents for walks, meetings, workshops and picnics. In exchange we got stories about surrounding from residents perspective – about contexts and histories. Together, we created an illustrated story about the place. We’ve been interviewing locals to learn the history and to collect private memories about the place. Using original photographs and stories, we’ve prepared the series of collages that are the sum of reminiscences, the representation of their common memory. One of them, chosen by residents, became a postcard promoting the place. In collaboration with residents, we also choose quotes based on street names and create new landmarks, which can be used as basis for walking paths. #locality #identity #participation #common memory

Ksevt — connecting people


ksevt — connecting people, vitanje local nanotourist generator ksevt Connecting people is a cultural and social generator of nanotourism in the small town of Vitanje with its new bold landmark ksevt, a space research exhibition space and local community centre. The nanotouristic generator operates as mediation and collaboration platform among existing local associations, administration, community interest groups and local residents. Ideas, visions and illusions are discussed, edited and integrated through the process of informal working gatherings to reconnect and produce a set of actions. Instead of introducing new built structures it encourages filling the voids both with establishing an annual program of participatory activities (festivals, workshops…) based on the exchange of knowledge and in the reuse of existing private and public built structures.

ksevt Connecting people is identifying potencials and therefore designing a platform for development of nanotourism in Vitanje. Designing a symbolic platform for future development shows the process of establishing links between local residents through the process of integration.

The process of bottom-up points to the need for the involvement of mediators with a view from outside and unladed approach expanding the field of creative thinking. Raising awareness of their own values, identifying opportunities for the development of microeconomics and involvement of local actors are the main steps on the path of nanotourism development. Defragmentation as the key tool of the development process presents an innovative and holistic approach to solving the problems faced by newly emerging tourist destination. As an alternative to introducing new built structures it encourages filling and upgrading the gaps within the existing built tissue in the context of designing accommodation, gastronomy and leisure. The introduction of defragmentation as a tool for regenerating the entire site, which is based on maintaining the identity and involvement of residents through the whole process, represents an important contribution to the development of nanotourism.
