“In Europe, between 1960 and 1975, some young architects who didn’t manage to get commands and weren’t satisfied of the architecture they were surrounded with, chose to express via publications, exhibitions and sometimes experimentations, so as to spread their visions of the future city. Halfway between concrete project and utopia, these approaches show a new conception of town and urbanism, based on the mobility of an architectural element, a living unit or even a whole town.” Eve Roy, http://rives.revues.org/2693
