Living in Motion
This interdisciplinary account of the different types of flexible living presents work by Modernist and contemporary architects and designers such as Charles and Ray Eames, Buckminster Fuller, Jean Prouve, Joe Colombo and Shigeru Ban, contrasting them with the flexible houses and installations featured in non-European cultures. In view of the on-going globalisation of life, the traditional distinction between sedentary and nomad lifestyles has been undermined. Due to the growing significance of transport the sedentary populations are as mobile as the nomads, just as the latter now set up permanent camp - in fact, the two ways of life have mutually influenced each other over the course of time. This title also sheds light on the causes and effects of mobile living from a sociological and psychological viewpoint.
