AirPort: An Open-Air Installation by Electroboutique

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 01, 2012
In 2009, Russian collective, Electroboutique created the public, open-air installation, AirPort, placing a departure flight kiosk in the middle of a forest. As the collective notes, the piece was a "poetic reflection on the possible ways of the urban civilization development. We are facing a choice: whether we should further sink our ferroconcrete teeth of architecture and transport system into the nature's body; or should we try to minimize our impact on it." Looks rather utopian to us.
