Today we live in a world where everything is at the reach of our fingertips. With a simple tap, swipe or scan, consumers drive an on-demand economy with the latest "must-have" products, swiftest delivery services and "true" love experiences. "Autonomic" imagines Melbourne, a city emerging from the demands of its occupants. Supported by a new service-infrastructure, it questions the role of design, construction and what life is like in this autopolis. Fuelled by growing technological development, it explores:

1. A new megastructure infrastructure for the city.

2. A subscription based economy.

3. Seamless digitalisation.

4. The flexibility of change.

5. Allowing everybody to be a designer.

From this, an ecosystem is grown, combining on-demand user services with artificial intelligence. The system adapts to its users, it transforms; and proliferates. Welcome to: the City, on Demand.
