Freely in space

"Living buildings - city of space - functional architecture.
The new form of the city arises from necessity:
The country city: the division of city and country will be abolished
The time city: time is the measure of organisation of its space
The space city: it floats freely in space in a de-centralized federation dictated by the ground formation
The automatic city: the processes of daily life are mechanized."
Friedrich Kiesler, De Stijl 10/11, vol.6, 1925
