Co-Machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture
About the Book:
‘Co-machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture’ takes as its premise the recent tendency among architects and designers to opt out of traditional office work in favour of creating self-initiated interventions in public space.
This compendium investigates a new architectural movement motivated by practices of place-making, occupying and squatting, and alternative economies. Ecological or technological in scope, all the interventions in the book are mobile and nearly all of them are performed without permission from city planners.
Presenting a selection of international projects by emerging designers, ‘Co-machines: Mobile Disruptive Architecture’ investigates the interventions and the accompanying movement to question its methods, and its arguments against the established procedures of urban planning and city-building. The visual language of the book, inspired by DIY risograph printing, is complemented by a series of thoughtful essays by architects, educators and critics working on the topic.
