The Continuous Monument
This work is directly inspired from Superstudio’s “The Continuous Monument” collages done in the 1960s. The Continuous Monument series demonstrate Superstudio’s conviction that by extending a single piece of architecture over the entire world they could reach a “cosmic order on earth.” The white, gridded, monolithic structures span the natural landscape and assert rational order upon it. Superstudio saw this singular unifying act – unlike many modern utopian schemes – as nurturing rather than obliterating the natural world.
