  7. Aan de rand van de historische Zaanse Schans staat een volledig eikenhouten uitkijktoren. De toren biedt uitzicht op het Zaanse natuur- en industrielandschap. De uitkijktoren markeert het beginpunt van een struinpad door de Kalverpolder, een boeiend natuurgebied met een rijke historie. Door zijn uitdagende constructie is de uitkijktoren een opvallende verschijning, zichtbaar vanaf de paden en pleinen van de Zaanse Schans.

    A Walking City for the 21st Century by Manuel Dominguez

    In a world where people live more mobile lifestyles than they have for centuries, cities are facing a problem they rarely planned for: their citizens move away. When jobs and resources start to decline, modern cities, such as Detroit, suffer difficult and often wasteful processes of urban contraction. In contrast to this, Manuel Dominguez’s “Very Large Structure,” the result of his thesis project at ETSA Madrid, proposes a nomadic city that can move on caterpillar tracks to locations where work and resources are abundant.

    Of course this is not the first time that the idea of a nomadic city has been proposed. Ron Herron’s Walking City is one of the more recognizable Archigram designs from the 1960s, and has been influential to architectural theory ever since. However, the design for the “Very Large Structure” expands on the Walking City by including strong proposals for energy generation on board the city.
