Urban Rhizome responds to the pressing need to produce housing fast and in large quantities. Simple basic elements lock together to form constantly evolving urban layers. With this generic, serial architecture, suitable for micro- and macro-territories, the city grows in a purely spatial dimension, with neither origin nor finality. Urban planning becomes as unpredictable as an invasion.
