A Future City From The Past by Clemens Gritl

The series, “A Future City From The Past” is based on this mystifying vision of a radically aggressive urban dystopia by Clemens Gritl — an uncompromising design in the brutalist dogma. All buildings and structures are homogenic. The differentiations of architectural styles and eras are eliminated and replaced by geometric structures, repetition and absolute materiality. Gigantic “Wohnmaschinen” encompassed by endless motorway networks, making way for the “Super-Brutalist” megacity.

The thrill of this project lies in exploring the aftermath. It is fascinating to imagine how a prefabricated, futuristic metropolis would age, and what atmosphere an endless manmade landscape, constructed of only concrete and asphalt, would generate. What impact would such a massive concentration of sculptural architecture have on mankind? Could such a city succeed in producing a functional society, or would it automatically plunge into menacing social dysfunction?
