Abstract

The '24 hour block' is a transforming machine, which constantly adapts to and provides a huge variety of spaces for urban activities. The project explores vacancy and separation of programs in contemporary cities as a potential for intensification and densification. Through mechanical transformation the block can respond to changing intensities and spatial requirements of urban activities over 24 hours. The project regards technology as a way to increase equality and agency for all users of the city. It increases density and diversity by envisioning the future urban block.
