Ground as Figure. Towards a Neometabolism
MetadataShow full item record
This is a story about a city that is not. It is about architecture that is not. Don’t ask me what the city is about, I can only tell you about what it isn’t. It is not about crystals and concrete. It is a city without figures and only grounds. Actually, it is not a single city. Half a dozen cities coexist and mutually support one another. The people in the cities establish connections to sustain the city’s life, whether by rails for endless waste or pipes connecting bathrooms, we may never now. It is a city with no walls and I don’t know if I can call it a city because it’s never finished and at times it looks demolished. However, it always lives. It has a very strong metabolism. What makes the metabolism so strong is also unknown but rumour has it that amongst the richest of people are those with pepper growing plots.
