A Landscape of Speculation. Rethinking space with machine intelligence.

This project serves as a visual study of what does the prevailing style transfer effect in mechine learning means for inhabitable space.

No-stop city (1969), an architecture proposal that was considered progressively equalitarian and idealistic in its time, share a   common metaphysic assumption with machine learning today: flat-ontology. The completely distributed layout of housings, vegestation, public spaces and so on implies endless duplication and extension beyond the sliding window.

This anarchist structure can preserve its spatial syntax regardless of what actually embeds within. Therefore, padding its skeleton with natural landscape can yield a surprising result in which, while the negative and positive space are swapped into each other, the openness and endlessness is maintained.
