Clemens Gritl’s body of work, A Future City from The Past, is based on a mystifying vision of a radically aggressive urban dystopia. Gritl ponders a future where all buildings and structures are homogenic. The differentiations of architectural styles and era are eliminated and replaced by geometric structures, repetition and absolute materiality. Gigantic “wohnmaschinen” (living machines) encompassed by endless motorway networks, make way for the “Super-Brutalist” megacity. Could such a city succeed in producing a functional society, or would it automatically plunge into menacing social dysfunction? Gritl’s work focuses on the interaction between space, dimension, scale, monotony and materiality of urban megastructures and their possible impact on human beings.
