The group members wrote, “The factory and the supermarket become the specimen models of the future city: Pier Vittorio Aureli hints at the first one many times in his writings about capitalism and architecture. They were inspired by the architectural group Archigram, and by its technological projects for urban utopias; in fact they took their name in part from the name of the British group and in part from the title— Zoom— of an issue of the publication Archigram.

His Residential Park, No-Stop City, like other works of Archizoom, is a reaction against modernist architecture that explores the imaginative at the expense of the practical. Archizoom takes those ideas of a homogeneous city and proposes it on an endless scale.

Spaces are filled with rocks and branches, small pieces of nature brought inside the artificial world. Maximum archiozom with minimum effort could be found in every product description from Silicon Valley. Archizoom has specifically been relevant because though my early research I was trying to understand how to describe the generic nature of cities and articulate some understanding of why.

Archizoom was a key participant in the “radical architecture” movement of the s, which reacted against modernist architecture and downplayed practical concerns in favor of a more imaginative, ciy approach.

I think by making these ties between Aureli and Archizoom it is clear that something within architecture discourse on its role within the city is no adding up. A society freed from its own alienation, emancipated from the rhetorical forms of humanitarian socialism and rhetorical progressivism: In that sense, architecture is attempting to interact directly with that world, but has realized its viability is only based on a response of yes or no.

To me right now it seems to be. They use the tools and ideas of modernism to then critique it. More information is also available about the film collection and the Circulating Film and Video Library. Public space becomes commerce space private space and commerce space becomes public space.

Does the building have units, sf of arcizoom space, and a coffee shop? Italy by Archizoom Change this. Inthe Archizoom group, while carrying out an experimental work in the field of design, also undertook a research on environment, mass culture and the city, which led to the project No-Stop City. No-Stop City is an ironic critique of the ideology of architectural modernism taking onto its absurd limits: Like a replicating microorganism, the city seems to subdivide and spread, lacking center or periphery.

Contradiction, to me, is one of the most important words in architecture. Tents, appliances, and motorcycles show that basic needs are met, while other drawings show endless grids of bedrooms, perhaps containing the Dream Bed or Safari Chair. No-Stop City is based on the idea that advanced technology could eliminate the need for a centralized modern city.


Residential units and free-form organic shapes representing parks are placed haphazardly over a grid structure, allowing for a large degree of freedom within a regulated system. Life becomes work and work becomes life, convenience. Ni you have additional information or spotted an error, please send feedback to digital moma.

Those contradictions lead to major issues within the field because architecture claims one thing but does another. Gathering all the texts and drawings, this book reveals to us the “Endless City” intertwining architecture with objects and the triumphant consumer society, giving an interpretation where the repetition of a single central element, a building or ciyt group of objects makes up, through a play of mirrors, a catatonic environment, a boundless supermarket, a now reached future to be composed.
