Anti(?)Architectures

In recent readings about parasitic / ephemeral / adaptive / relational architecture, how we play with it and how we try to control it, I came across Marjetica Potrc's exhibition on Urgent Architecture. For those who aren't familiar, Potrc is a Slovenian artist who explores subjects like contemporary building strategies and empty spaces in cities, along with virtual urbanisms (see also hybrid architectures), the different states of modern cities, and emerging public spaces and communities.

Excellent stuff.

See also parasitoid life, parasitic computing and power harvesting. And Joey was telling me about some weird little robotic parasites that jump up and attach themselves to your pant-legs. But I forget the details.
