Mobile Architecture – Construction and Design Manual
Today we are happy to introduce you to a new category in our blog. From now on, we will showcase selected books or papers. Here you will find books at the interface between architecture, marketing, art, and design. We start with the book Mobile Architecture – Construction and Design Manual.
„Mobility is a challenge that architecture has always had to confront; Aristotle was merely the first to philosophize about it. In the present age of digital nomadism, the art of building, with its traditional focus on immobility in fixed places, finds itself confronted by the temptation to relinquish its characteristic rootedness and to abandon itself to the irresistible pull of mobility. In countless manifestos, avant-garde architects describe how they intend to dissolve buildings and indeed whole cities, create an architecture based on a machine aesthetic that prominently involves mobility, and give their buildings legs or wheels.”
