Finizio’s theme is one we can see on the streets: having changed the 19th-century city into a “metropolis” of suburbs and highways, the car as an object is, in turn, changing in relation to the modern city. A leading Italian design professional, Finizio has gathered an international symposium of architects to explore how urban planning, architecture, and design ideas can create a new design philosophy for the automobile as a sort of domestic moving space that interacts with the new urban environment. This richly illustrated book focuses on the relationship between the static city and “mobile architecture” of the car through the works of some of the most important contemporary international architects such as Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhass, Jean Nouvel, Massimiliano Fuksas, and Alessandro Mendini.This is an urgent, exciting design mission that finally deals with how thinking about the urban car must coevolve in profound new ways.
