Ville Suspendue / Takis Zenetos

Takis Zenetos 1

 

Electronic Urbanism, an avant-garde speculative project on town planning and electronics, by Takis Zenetos (1926-1977), the brilliant architect who designed some of the most beautiful buildings in Greece during the 60′s and early 70′s.

The basic idea of Electronic Urbanism, which Zenetos designed, developed and investigated from 1952 to 1974, is the creation of a system with diverse levels and locations for different urban functions, primarily residential, suspended from natural environments (as cantilevers or mountains) and integrated with all communications technologies, that allow wide-ranging connections among people and social groups.
