1960s Utopian Groups. The 1960s saw a second wave of utopian architecture in Europe following the social utopias imagined in the 1920s. Some of the approaches focused on emerging cultural conditions, such as mobility and flexibility, whilst others, such as those of Constant Nieuwenhuys and Yona Friedman, saw their utopias as instruments of societal change. What often related these approaches architecturally were mega-structures that could be 'plugged-into' or 'clipped-onto', providing a framework which could be modified, adapted and extended.

The most well-known of the first group are Archigram, formed at the Architectural Association in London in 1961. Using various formats including (fan)zines, comic strips, poetry and radical statements, they produced a vision of a consumerist city, made possible through a faith in technology and the optimism of a time before the oil crisis of the seventies and the realisation of the finite nature of natural resources.

Mt--------------------circo. Estudio Teddy Cruz - La Jolla - Architects | world-architects.com. In the context of a post 9-11 political equator that divides the world and the city between enclaves of mega-wealth and sectors of poverty, urbanities of labor and surveillance, the formal and informal, our institutions of architecture representation and display have lost their socio-political relevance and advocacy. estudio teddy cruz : from the global border to the border neighborhood The perennial alliance between militarization and urbanization is reenacted at the San Diego / Tijuana border and later reproduced in many US neighborhoods, as the expansion of a social legislation of fear is transforming the 11 million illegal laborers who mostly live there into criminal suspects.

What are the implications of these forces of control on one hand and of non-conformity on the other in the reshaping of the American City? Our projects primarily engage the micro scale of the neighborhood, transforming it into the urban laboratory of the 21st century. BIG - Bjarke Ingels Group. BLDGBLOG: The City and its Flooded Double. [Image: "Aqualta: 5th Avenue & 35th Street, NYC," by Studio Lindfors; view larger]. Studio Lindfors—of Cloud Skippers and Cloud City fame—have released a stunning new series of images, published here on BLDGBLOG for the first time, in which we see New York City and Tokyo after a catastrophic flood.

[Image: "Aqualta: Garment District, NYC," by Studio Lindfors; view larger]. Called Aqualta, the project is an exquisitely produced tour of a hydrologically transformed metropolis. Gondolas float through a still-blazing Times Square; people fish atop gravel banks that have built up beside inundated skyscrapers; and an aerial network of blimps, catwalks, pedestrian skyways, and cable cars passes and sways above the Venetian streets. I can't emphasize enough how beautifully detailed the images are; I've put them into a Flickr set for closer viewing. [Image: "Aqualta: Shibuya Station, Tokyo," by Studio Lindfors; view larger]. Again, check out the images in more detail.

TEK-HOMES. Página de inicio. >Zoohaus. Economia urbana. El blog de Basurama. Des-campado: Un campo que deja de ser campo. Un trozo de campo antes de ser ciudad. Un espacio salvado (o aislado) de la especulación inmobiliaria… y de los huertos urbanos.. y de solar autogestionado.., es decir, de cualquier tipo de uso reglado. El descampao fue el clásico icono del paisajismo y el urbanismo de los últimos noventa. Es el protagonista de uno de los típicos poemas que citan los snobs. Mis abuelos celebraron su banquete de boda en un descampao en 1945. Venga, vamos a ponernos nostáligcos. ¡Qué emocionante era jugar en el descampao típico madrileño de la periferia! Años más tarde, la burbuja inmobiliaria volvió a construir ciudad nueva a destajo en los dosmiles.

Descampaos hay muchos y de todo tipo: Unos tienen muchos años de antigüedad en el barrio y se terminan convirtiendo en parkings. En otros viven lagartijas -y gran fauna variada- y sirven incluso de escenario típico madrileño, para potenciar lo que se llama ahora “Marca Madrid”: O incluso para el Arte:
