Overview Description 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.

The domestication of the work place is really meant to blur the lines between work and life. Andrea Branzi, a founding member of Archizoom, the Italian avant-garde architectural group begun inwas inspired by the urban utopias of the British group Archigram. 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. 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.


A society freed from its own alienation, emancipated from the rhetorical forms of humanitarian socialism and rhetorical progressivism: This is the real yardstick model sfop the future city and consequently of reality as a whole: 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.

No-Stop City

The Museum of Modern Art,p. That is a capitalist principle at its core, yet architecture design, architecture process, and every aspect of society has embraced it while seemingly attempting to question the impacts of capitalism within our society. They use the tools and ideas of modernism to then critique it.

No-Stop City is a qualityless city in which the individual can achieve his own housing conditions as a creative, freed and personal activity. 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.

Contradiction, to me, is one of the most important words in architecture. Life becomes work and work becomes life, convenience. 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. The principle behind the No-Stop City was the idea that advanced technology could eliminate the need for a centralized modern city.

It seems like architecture and architects have no way to even articulate some way to address the contradictions within architecture and society. No-stop City is an unbuilt project and documented in drawings.

The group members wrote, “The factory and the supermarket become the specimen models of the future city: 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.

I think now in a very general way because archizzoom is becoming longer than intended I have established cify terms and ways to describe processes, design, and the market within the city. To qualitative utopias, we oppose the only possible utopia: The theoretical project was first published in the review Casabella inunder the title: 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.

Archizoom takes those ideas of a homogeneous city and proposes it on an endless scale. 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. This plan illustrates a fragment of a metropolis that can be extended infinitely through the ardhizoom of homogenous elements adapted to a variety of uses.

Archizoom has stip 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.

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. This record is a work in progress. No-Stop City Archizoom Associati.
