The uncovering and exhibiting of Seuthopolis by architect Zheko Tilev, 2005.
Seuthopolis, the city of the Thracian king Seuthes the IIIrd, and the capital of the ancient state of Odrissia, (end of IV c. BC.) was discovered and explored in 1948 - 1954 during the construction of the Koprinca dam. Unfortunately, after the dam was filled with water the first and the best preserved Thracian city in modern Bulgaria remained on the bottom of the artificial lake. This mistake, from the times of historical and national nihilism, can be corrected today and Seuthopolis can be returned into the treasure house of world cultural heritage.
The project file can be downloaded as pdf here.

Migrant Skyscraper via Evolo
The “Migrant Skyscraper” is literally mobile: A giant, thin tire with a building and green space in the center, this skyscraper is ready to roll.

    1930s imagining of 1980s New York in the sci-fi musical Just Imagine (1930, dir. David Butler) (via)

    Designed by art director Stephen Goosson, the city set was an elaborate miniature model that covered a ground area of 75 x 225 feet and whose tallest tower measured 40 feet.

    Just Imagine’s New York was primarily inspired by architect Harvey Corbett’s prediction that 1970’s New York would resemble a “very modernized Venice” and by the futuristic urban designs presented in Hugh Ferriss’s 1929 book, The Metropolis of Tomorrow.

    Ferriss’s drawings of the ”business center of the future” (pictures #3-5) provided the most direct inspiration for Goosson’s sets. Broad superhighways establish a geometric ground plan that extends upward through overlapping levels of bridges, streets, and terraced walkways. The grid of streets and bridges is pierced by huge freestanding skyscrapers surrounded by lower setback buildings, a design Ferriss created as an analogy to the natural world of “towering mountain peaks… surrounded by foothills”

    The opening scenes of the (otherwise mediocre) film, which feature this cityscape, can be seen here

polychroniadis:

 In June 1919 writer Carl Dienstbach laid out all possible pitfalls of bringing aircrafts to cities, noting, “clearly, city streets, flanked by high cliffs of architecture, lend themselves about as well for airplane landing and starting as they do for ice-boating.” One solution to this problem: “a platform in the form of a circular, high-banked track—a track that would be constructed of light but strong iron gratings, so that sun and air would still find their way to the streets below.”
