Self-sustaining mobile mega city






This super star is an interesting concept to densify daily life into a surprisingly versatile building. As you can see in the images, it would obstruct surprisingly little if it were to be placed in the centre of Manhattan (conveniently ignoring technicalities such as obstructing view and the strength of the foundation). I'm still unsure how they plan on moving this object from time to time, but nevertheless, a fascinating assignment.

Source of the photos is inhabitat.com, i-MAD is the founder of this project, the model of this project will be presented in Venice this year and at last, there is some footage on Dumpert.
