This project is an attempt to predict the needs of a future society. BANCAN is a bank for preppers. For those feeling particularly unsafe amongst the turmoil of the global financial crisis and those who are more afraid the doomsday will be caused by ecological crisis. In the last few years we have witnessed such fears grow and take many forms. For some people, expecting the catastrophe has become a lifestyle. They stock on food, guns and precious metals, since they expect that money will be of no use when one of their catastrophic scenarios happens. In this bank, they can stock on food, water or fuels and be sure its kept hidden underground. Retrieving the savings doesn’t require any ID or staff – it recognizes the client by his pupil and delivers the food through a system of pneumatic tubes.
