A Paradoxical Imago Mundi: The No-Stop City by Archizoom Associati

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The No-Stop City (1970-71) by Archizoom Associati was born from a simple, and yet radical, idea: to create an interior and potentially endless city by spreading artificial lighting and air-conditioning to all human activities. From the moment of its publication, the project has been analyzed from very different perspectives. This text focuses precisely on what makes it a polysemic work that allows diverse and contrasting interpretations: its striking contradictory or, at least, paradoxical character.
