"In a city where hyper-density and permanence are established as the norm, its inhabitants are limited in their opportunity to perform acts of spontaneity. Architecture of monumentality within our cities has taken away form our outspoken temperament due to their static and unchanging nature. These buildings contain the desires and pre-occupations of their time and cannot adapt to changing social dynamics. To counter this rooted and presiding environment, I am proposing the introduction of mobile interventions to the urban environment in order to create opportunities for the city's inhabitants to engage in spontaneous discourse."
