Holon City - It's time to play a different game


HolonCity is the first Distributed Autonomous Community (DAC) that leverages Gamification, Living Systems Theory, and Information Theory to provide a platform for linking all fields of scientific and cultural knowledge, from which emergent and innovative approaches to environmental, social, and economic development can be achieved.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution

"What I'm suggesting to you is that this could be a renaissance. We may be on the cusp of a future which could provide a tremendous leap forward for humanity."

- Jeremy Rifkin

"Every intellectual revolution which has ever stirred humanity into greatness has been a passionate protest against inert ideas."
- Alfred North Whitehead
“It's not a faith in technology. It's faith in people.”
- Steve Jobs

A Holonic Evolutionary Approach

Imagine Harlem is being developed with the Holon City framework. A "holon" is Greek for "whole/parts" meaning literally the whole that is simultaneously a part, and vice versa.

Everything, yes, every-thing is a system and part of a system, a whole and part of a greater whole. “Holon” is the word that has been coined for this. A holonic approach creates the foundation for a comprehensive approach to deliberate community innovation and co-evolution.

The city management approach using holons is a unique and innovative method of improving governance and resilience. Holons are systems that combine both organizational and individual elements, allowing for the creation of complex structures within cities.

Holonic Framework

Imagine Harlem is the first implementation of the Holon City platform. A framework for locally resistant economic and environmental development.

Community Platform

The Beauty of Community is the first NFT Collection to be offered in support of the development of the Imagine Harlem Living Systems Community Platform. 

Method and Architecture


Concrescence open-source software and impact programs create the foundation for growth and abundance in the new economy based on peer-to-peer relationships, collaborative commons, and open-innovation.

In the 20+ years since the Internet gained mass adoption, we've seen technology transform our lives in many ways. The Internet has changed the way we think, shop, do business and communicate. Information-based industries including publishing, music are education are already being redefined. We're now moving into a new era that promises to have a broader and deeper impact across all aspects of our lives including social and business structure, economy, and manufacturing. 


The advent of generative technologies, including AI, machine learning, and other forms of automation is already having a significant impact on society. We've now moved solidly into The Fourth Industrial Revolution. Communications, energy, and manufacturing capabilities define an industrial age. In its first phase, the Internet has already redefined communications. Now in the next stage, energy, manufacturing, governance, and our social interactions are about to be transformed through a convergence of new technologies: robotics, 3D printing, and blockchain-based smart contracts, along with rapidly evolving AI platforms.

Platform Components

Human / Social

Multi-stakeholder Framework

Decentralized computing creates the foundation for global collaborative development and cooperation. A new emergent organizational level is now capable of completely novel contributions to human civilization and life on earth.  

Decision Making

Trim Tab Framework

Inspired by Buckminster Fuller's description of the "smaller rudder" that efficiently moves a ship's larger rudder the Trim Tab Guidance System utilizes AI, machine learning, and stakeholder governed Intelligent Living Charters for the most effective use of large data to realize goals and purpose.

systems / process

Schema Connected Framework

The Connected Framework is a schema-based architecture enabling comprehensive and global interoperability at an industry scale.

Big Data and Iot

Purpose Driven Ledger

Once an intent is selected for the ledger every interaction may be compared to a series of parallel options, if one of these options allows the ledger to move closer to its goal it will be offered up to the user. Over time by selecting these behaviors the users' (systems) behavior may be modified and the ledger moves closer to its target. As the system develops and learns suggestions may be offered by the ledger and not users themselves. 

Trusted Community Framework

UpTrace Contact Tracing and Community Health Council


Uptown Contact Trace - a prototype for a locally cohesive, governed, and trusted community-based network. (6/2020 - 2/2021)

Local neighborhoods and especially at-risk communities need to take charge right now. It is clear from the disproportionate numbers of fatalities and healthcare disparities for people of color, that the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated pre-existing systemic inequalities across the country.

Development in collaboration with Inrupt, Silicon Harlem, Safe2, KnishIO, and HHPH

Our vision is a trusted decentralized peer-to-peer governance and tech ecosystem based on community trust, compassion, and social justice as a comprehensive community solution.
