Entrant‘s description

Stella – Constellation Berlin Brandenburg 2070 – Ideography of a Constellation – A Contribution to Fictional Science
I/III Metropolis. It is the year 2070.
The old city no longer had any borders, only peripheries. The peripheries increasingly took over the landscapes. The old city lost its equilibrium. A new phenomenon emerges: a city with borders. The city grows within these borders. The city of cities grows within its cities: metropolis. The metropolis knows only the borders of its cities. Nature separates the cities: landscape. Landscapes connect the cities. The cities regain their closed form. A city has a form. A city is predominately shaped by its interior space. The urban landscape is overwhelmed, because it has become an undifferentiated and un-­designed mixture of city and countryside.
