Cranes as THE Architecture


Cranes as THE Architecture


Have you ever looked up at the starry sky and seen nothing but crane-red lights?
File under

It looks like cranes are holding whole cities up in in the air. They inspire us with fear and awe at the same time. A friend once said: “Oh, my god, The Cranes are coming in!”, meaning his business will soon be relocated. Yet, they are amazing.
Leaving dystopian scenarios behind, what if cranes themselves would be pieces of autonomous architecture with habitable spaces suspended from them? How many different configurations would be possible with help of a joystick? Without touching the ground. Need to come down, use a pulley, or a ladder, or simply - jump! Let us explore.
Imagine crane city moving in a choreography, performing most beautiful dance, drawing new star constellations.
