Stop and Go

In the near future, humanity will witness great migrations. In fifteen pencil drawings, Claude Parent proposes new architectural forms to encourage the flux of nomads and allow them to coexist with settled persons.

In response to contemporary anxieties, Claude Parent reiterates his radical positions on an architecture in service of a humanity that is reinventing itself: “We must never again build closed cities, fortified in their own territories, protected by impenetrable defences. Let us unroll immense pathways in the form of continuous ribbons upon the surface of the Earth to assure the permanent fluctuation of humanity on the move.”
