the Continuous Monument and the Global GRID

EVERYTHING COULD BE REPLACED BY THE CONTINUOUS, GLOBAL GRID.

The use of the earth comes about by means of service and communications grids. Cities are their intersection points. The grid is a continuous, but not a homogeneous, system… The landscape becomes increasingly artificial and homogeneous… Toward the disappearance of the membranes dividing interior and exterior…

Supersurface: a model of a mental attitude… There will be no more need for cities or castles, no more purpose for streets or squares, every point will be the same as every other. The journey from A or B might be long or short: in every instance it will be a constant migration.

(Superstudio 1970)
