A Situation Constructed from Loose and Overlapping Social and Architectural Aggregates
|Author:||M. Meredith & H. Sample (MOS architects)|
Cities structure our lives, resources, interactions and identities. Michael Meredith and Hilary Sample from MOS Architects (New York) consider what happens when the city no longer structures us, or when basic urban elements -- streets, buildings, facades and addresses -- have been augmented, superimposed, and untethered by or replaced through technology. This book is a playful investigation into urban alternatives. Employing neither the holistic worldview of mapping nor the isolated islands of architectural typology, MOS imagines a proposal where the city is everywhere.
