I’ve always thought of cities as machines. This concept take this simile a bit further. From the site:
“The Clockwork City is an urban structure concept whereby entire districts move, thus negating the need for transport systems. Need to get to work? Wait 10 minutes until your work place moves into walking distance”
It’s interesting to think how this would change the experience of the urban environment from one that is mostly place based to one that is temporal as well. Your position in the city and the time you find yourself there could reveal a very unique set circumstances, views and experiences. It would take the experiences available in a normal urban environment and multiply them exponentially with each added ring.
Plus, it would make it really easy to run from the cops!
