Problems of traffic noise and security, with the desire to have unobstructed views drove the design out beyond the bluff achieved through six concrete beams.

25 abandoned Yugoslavia monuments that look like they’re from the future

“These structures were commissioned by former Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito in the 1960s and 70s to commemorate sites where WWII battles took place or where concentration camps stood. They were designed by different sculptors and architects, conveying powerful visual impact to show the confidence and strength of the Socialist Republic. In the 1980s, these monuments attracted millions of visitors per year, especially young pioneers for their ‘patriotic education.’ After the Republic dissolved in early 1990s, they were completely abandoned, and their symbolic meanings were forever lost. From 2006 to 2009, Kempenaers toured around the ex-Yugoslavia region with the help of a 1975 map of memorials, bringing before our eyes a series of melancholy yet striking images.”

One City | Will Insley | Socks Studio

American artist Will Insley worked for over 40 years on a monumental project, the planning of an imaginary city called “OneCity”. Starting in the 1950s, with a huge series of paintings and drawings, the artist constructed an urban vision which he completed with writings on the social and political structures associated with the physical aspects. Insley asserted that the project has its roots in ancient myths rather than in utopian views or contemporary urban planning theories and projects.

The architectural layout of OneCity consists of over 14000 square metres of nine-story buildings. Each one is two and half miles wide and is divided into an “Over-building” and an “Under-building”, with nine underground floors. The overall system takes the shape of a labyrinthine semi-buried complex, located between the Mississippi and the Rockies, able to host the whole population of the United States at the time: 400 millions people. The architectural language is rather sculptural  with an attempt to an atemporal style, lacking any ornament or recognizability of functions.

Glen Lake Tower Balance Associates Architects

Directed to create “a sustainable retreat that reflects the timeless beauty and simple comforts of the area,” the architects responded by raising the primary living space above the dense surrounding woods in order to gain light, air and views of Glen Lake and Lake Michigan beyond. Two fin-like, metal-clad walls rise from the crown of the hill to support a three-story plywood box suspended a full story above grade.
