Constant and New Babylon’s roots

2005
Article

Constant’s “city for homo ludens”, New Babylon, was a “nomad camp on a planetary scale”. It was born in 1956 in Italy, at Alba, in a settlement of Piedmontese gypsies on the land of painter Pinot Gallizio. Fifty years later, Domus visits the site to reconstruct the origins of architecture’s first nomadic utopia.
