Parasite Paradise A Manifesto for Temporary Architecture and Flexible Urbanism






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  NAi Uitgevers / Publishers Stichting
Summary: Parasites are flexible and temporary structures, designed by artists or architects, that feed off of existing infrastructure. Parasite Paradisedocuments 23 projects that respond on their own terms to new and unforeseen demands. Many of these parasites have settled in the government-designated "Vinex" district of Leidsche Rijn near Utrecht, turning a district almost exclusively concerned with dwelling into a more urba...n entity. What do these small, mobile architectural interventions mean for our strictly regulated society and for the planning of architecture and urbanism? What sense (or nonsense) is there in mobile architecture from a historical perspective? How much of it is art and how much is architecture? Parasite Paradiseencourages us to consider a new approach to planning, one where not everything is fixed beforehand. This makes it required reading for architects, urban planners, and artists whose concern is designing urban space. With projects by Shigeru Ban, Atelier van Lieshout, Vito Acconci, Alicia Framis, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster & Martial Galfione, Kathrin B hm & Stefan Saffer with Andreas Lang, Attila Foundation, Winter/H rbelt, and others. [read more]
