Darryl Chen’s Mobile Mountain [MBL.MTN] project and essay “On Infrastructure” have been published in Architectural Inventions: Visionary Drawings. The Laurence King publication presents a arresting and awe-inspiring visual study of impossible or speculative structures. Highlighting visions that exist outside of established channels of production and conventions of design, Architectural Inventions showcases a multiplicity in concept and vision, fantasy and innovation.

From Chen’s essay “On Infrastructure”:

Infrastructure starts to outrun regulatory control. Police have no means of attending disputes over these miscellaneous grievances. The redesigning of nature blurs borders and redefines definitions of public amenity and urban rights. But as utility evolves, so does it become absorbed into our way of life. These geopolitical skirmishes and productive dystopias give birth to the future.
