The No-stop City is an instrument of emancipation. 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.

All requests to license audio or video footage produced by MoMA should be addressed to Scala Archives at firenze scalarchives. Archizoom takes dtop ideas of a homogeneous city and proposes it on an endless scale.

When it comes to the ideology of Silicon Valley, they want to remove all contradiction and complexity with a yes or a no 0 or 1.

The drawings show an infinitely extending grid, subdivided by partial lines symbolizing walls, and interrupted only by natural features such as mountains.

Generic is not a new term, but I think it is an easy way to describe the majority of architecture within cities whether that is good or bad is not the current question. A society freed from its own alienation, emancipated from the rhetorical forms of humanitarian socialism and rhetorical progressivism: Newsletter Stay informed and subscribe to our monthly newsletter.


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. To me right now it seems to be. So, what does this mean for the city now? I think there will be larger questions of place and identity asked within these topics but this seems to frame a new crisis. 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 a group of objects makes up, through a play of mirrors, a catatonic environment, a boundless supermarket, a now reached future to be composed.

This plan illustrates a fragment of a metropolis that can be extended infinitely through the addition of homogenous elements adapted to a variety of uses. Contradiction, to me, is one of the most important words in architecture.

An app is designed to solve a problem and its viability is contingent on it solving said problem. Strongly ironic but designed with committed political ingenuity, the proposal questions the normative character of the existing city and defends new conceptions of life as expressed in revolutionary urban form.

No Stop City | Architectuul

Italy by Archizoom Change this. No-Stop City is based on the idea that advanced technology could eliminate the need for a centralized modern city. Life becomes work and work becomes life, convenience. As Andrea Branzi puts it, this project implements “the idea of the fading away of architecture within metropolis”. The theoretical project was first published in the review Casabella inunder the title: They use the tools and ideas of modernism to then critique it.


Apps view the world as complex, but believe that they can solve for it with convenience. No-Stop City Archizoom Associati.

Archjzoom think by making these archizoon between Aureli and Archizoom it is clear that something within architecture discourse on its role within the city is no adding up. 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.

No-Stop City, 1969

For access to motion picture film stills please contact the Film Study Center. The Museum of Modern Art, No-Stop City is a critical Utopia, a model of global urbanization where design is the essential conceptual instrument used in the mutation of living patterns and territories.

The photographs portray an endless and rather featureless space in which humans live as campers. Free-form organic shapes—representing park areas—and residential units are placed haphazardly over a grid structure, allowing for a large degree of freedom within a regulated system.

Like other radical architecture groups of the s, it reacted against modernist architecture and downplayed practical concerns in favor of an imaginative, science-fiction-like approach.

In this drawing, which presents an idea rather than an actual plan, technology eliminates the need for a centralized city. To qualitative utopias, we oppose the only possible utopia: No Stop City Change this.

Biomorphic forms, placed haphazardly over an infinitely extendable grid represent acclimatized microenvironments, for example, green amoeba-like forms are parks, and the serpentine strings are housing units. The domestication of the work place is really meant to blur the lines between work and life.

Like a replicating microorganism, the city seems to subdivide and spread, lacking center or periphery.
