The idea of an urban development project based on a fully automated society in which human labour has become unnecessary no longer sounds utopian. City Rising is a meditation on life, love, work and privacy in neo-liberal times. The starting points are Constant Nieuwenhuys’ architectural maquettes for his ‘New Babylon’.
