Walking City: Architecture + Evolution + Movement
A city is more than an assemblage of buildings and roads and sewer pipe. It is, in its own way, a living, breathing thing. In “Walking City: Architecture + Evolution + Movement,” a video from media design studio Universal Everything, the architecture of a city takes on a life of its own in a spellbinding way.
Taking cues from the work of Archigram, a 1960s avant-garde architecture group, the video follows a human-like figure that morphs into the forms of radical architecture, like Peter Cook’s Plug-In City and Bucky Fuller’s geodesic dome. The title is a nod to The Walking City, a futurist concept first introduced by British architect Ron Herron in the 1960s. Herron anticipated the increasingly mobile nature of contemporary life and proposed an infrastructure of mobile, robotic structures that would move freely and create a society of nomadic cities.

Julian Hoeber - Demon Hill (2010-12)
"A freestanding structure based on the architecture of ‘gravitational mystery spots’. The architecture of these shacks creates the illusion that gravity works at an angle, that water runs uphill, and that bodies stand at a sharp angle to the floor.
'Mystery spots' claim to be an effect and marker of a geological anomaly or a supernatural phenomenon and the illusion is so convincing that it gives even rational people pause. The project allows for a playful experience of space and narrative while opening questions of how psychology and ideology form meaning in art.”
