Research - Hyper Nollie
Meet Hyper-Nollie, a map of cities with which cities are city.
Foremost, cities create opportunities and at best plenty of them. In this map, no parthood, no stitch, no bond, no joint repeats; this map consists of 40 parts with the ability to compose 5.38E22 distinct spaces while being continuously connected. Radically flat, each space is accessible from each part. Hyper-Parts add not “more or less” but a more: another dimension, another world.
Reducing the number of parts was an important step shifting the notion from design- to architectural thinking: from shape to composition. Buildings and cities consist of plenty of parts. Machines with ease can think plenty - but not a “more”. So, how do you make a “more” with plenty? Reducing parts allows to render the composition only, the more through plenty. Ultimately, it is not the number of parts but the number of “mores” that matter.
