Biennale 2000

In conjunction with Professor Wolfgang Rang and students of Frankfurt's school of architecture.

Vision, practice and experiment of a new urban process assumes a complete reversal of the kind of the urban design process we are used to in the twentieth century. Instead of planning streets, we start with buildings.

The fundamental assumption is that the growth of a city is a process similar to processes we find in nature. The process is universal and rules any kind of growth.

We assume that a set of rules has the power to generate a process of growth, just like a genetic code does in every living organism. Urban structure will thus emerge step by step, become complete and solid and capable of changing positively over time.
