The term Metaculture ...
As soon as we start using nature, we can consider it culture. Cultivation is worshiped according to human needs and man-made rules and rituals. We have agriculture, silviculture, and horticulture. The specialized cultivation forms such as aquaculture, electroculture and fungiculture as well as the holistic cultivation approaches; Permaculture and biodynamics with different polycultures.
Metaculture covers the total amount of cultivation forms within the grown environment.
Metaculture is all the universal concepts that are present in all cultures while at the same time referring to a sort of culture about cultures. Putting Metaculture in a metropolitan context, we have a unique toolbox for creating inclusive and cyclic environments for any given urban context. This could be climate adaptive urban designs, social growing communities, urban farming and other green sustainable projects. Incorporating Metropolitan Metaculture into the design and transformation process, ensures performative and nature-based solutions, with a balance between biological, social, and aesthetic qualities. Metropolitan Metaculture works for a greener, better and more sustainable world, with plants as the focal point.
innovative planting design
The philosophy of MeMe - Metropolitan Metaculture - is that humans can be just as beneficial and a factor in the ecosystems of the world as we are today destructive. If we want solid green transformation and real sustainability, all green initiatives must come into play. At the same time, we must have people included and engaged in the transformation - not least in the cities, where a diverse urban nature needs space and the cultivation of food must take place.
The great potential of the magical treasure trove of plants must be exploited far better than it is done today.
That is why all conceivable forms of cultivation and uses of plants must be incorporated in robust and cyclic systems when we develop our cities. Me-Me is exactly that.
