The first event in the 515 series (events on a variety of topics that takes place on Thursdays 15:00 at the Future City Innovation Lab) is a review session for the project Cryptopark. The Cryptopark tower is a cryptocurrency mining unit that hides in a high-rise water park. In addition to being able to bypass sanctions in the post-nuclear deal (JCPOA) era, this waterpark helps with cooling the equipment.
“The Cryptocurrency project is looking for a way out of the country’s economic crisis in a meticulous way to emphasize the deteriorating nature of the current situation.” Claimed the designers. “In this project, architecture acts as a means to emphasize and convey a socio-economic message. The project strives to go beyond the traditional architectural discipline frameworks to achieve its goal.”
The project was originally designed to take part in the conceptual competition of high-rise buildings, eVolo, and has subsequently attracted much attention in the architectural and cryptocurrency communities. Reports and media coverage of the project can be found on ArcDaily, Designboom, and Bitcoinist.
