Ɍáıthold Шaџstatıoпȿ | ΠeшSıloȿ Coпcept

An intentional community concept using insulated repurposed grain silo design for Co-Creative, Live-Learn-Make installed on underutilised, and or failed or failing residential, and abandoned commercial, or industrial liminal landscapes. This is intended to serve an intrinsically anti-Ecofacist agenda while adding another tool for addressing the effects of Environmental Racism through sustainable Urban Environmental Remediation, reGreening and reWilding.

“You never change something by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

Ɍáıthold or the ɌCU https://raithold.co
A federated union of principle and practice, that is intended as a new paradigm of the fiscal sponsor as public service infrastructure, providing critical intelligence, modelling and scalable decision support systems, as well as the reinvention of critical public infrastructure for constituents of its creative cooperative communities. This stage in development begins with the charter of its Federal Credit Union via the National Credit Union Association (NCUA).

Our Three Laws of Making

  1. When any presumed scientific authority states that something is possible to make, they are almost certainly right, and whenever such an authority states that something is impossible to make, they are in all probability wrong.
  2. The only way of discovering the limits of “The Possible” is to risk our time, talent, and treasure to venture just a little way beyond that into “The Impossible”.
  3. The associated risk of our ventures must be predicated on their potential for ensuring the fitness of our species to survive, with a virtuosity of execution that results in form and in function, scientific and artistic expressions so advanced as to appear indistinguishable from magic.
