A Nomadic Micro-city by Stephane Malka

The architect Stephane Malka wrote a book entitled ‘Le Petit Pari(s)’ in which he described a micro-city built as a voluntary ghetto as a response to the economic downturn and the dependency on mass production, offering a project that incorporates upscale volumes in a modular active system.

The spaces are accessed through footbridges and were mounted on scaffolding so that it can be readapted with ease to provide other configurations. Public spaces were mixed between them and the residents are the ones who can reorganize the scheme so that it can be oriented toward their main interests.

There are office areas, art galleries, recording studios and night clubs placed into the units and you can see the purpose of each volume from its protruding glass wall. The designer though that the bridge-like structure would fit very well on the Pont Neuf of Paris, so his renderings are of this area, with a stunning presence during the nighttime due to the semi-transparent material binding the volumes together.
