Fantasmagoria of Chongqing - Architecture, Politics, Fiction
Fantasmagoria of Chongqing is a snap-shot of the emergence of a rural urban mega-city and reports an unprecedented reality of inhuman living conditions. The project quests the genesis of the state of mind, the modern mythologies and the phantasmagories which inhabit Chongqing.
China is the epicenter of the current global urbanization phenomena. The vast and mountainous territory of Chongqing underlies, cased by an authoritarian led political system a violent transformation. A purely pragmatic orientated urban planing practice generates consequently architectural mutations, irrational phenomena and fragments of utopia.
