Mobile architecture

views updated

Mobile architecture. Concept promoted by Yona Friedman and others, which held that users of buildings and settlements should have a say in plans and changes to them. Architecture would consist of structural frameworks, infrastructures, and services raised above the ground that would be infinitely adaptable. Such views influenced thinking in the 1960s and 1970s, notably Metabolism.


Y. Friedman (1970, 1975)
