The thesis, 'BLIND SPOTS OF A SPOTLESS CITY,' welcomes you to the fictional outlook on the next phase of Songdo Smart City: An urban life driven by content-based profit and its apparatus. Curated by corporations and filled with residential influencers sponsored by them, existing urban condition transforms into vertical sound stages, forming a citywide content production factory. The city is kept spotless than ever before, as itself becomes a supervised job - as Songdorians say, 'I work for the city!' By showcasing Songdo, the investigation of the thesis questions the idea of human life in symbiosis with the architecture replaced by the technology, and proposed an apparatus that becomes the stage of situations and life. The thesis might contain scenes of graphic violence and brutal depictions of future. Architects who are faint of dystopia, prone to alternative utopia or have weak stomachs are advised to take extreme caution. For those choosing to continue, you have been warned...
