With the rise of itinerant or nomadic lives and cultures, Auto-Motive is a destabilized and improvisational urbanism.
Progressing from the scales at n1, to the decameter n2, until the kilometric n3, past urbanisms are replaced by forms of compliant or 'automotive' movement. By operating outside the electromagnetic paradigm, the new city utilizes mass as well as geometry to provide for potential tilting, springing and rolling dictated by social activity.
The discoveries from simple geometries are maintained into what becomes complex social structures, spaces, and activities for future-forward societies.
