Suburban Living has infiltrated the city. Suburban proclivities towards isolation and dispersion undermine the social congestion that propagates urban social relations, slowly sucking the life out of the city. SUPERBLOCK exploits the current developer typology of the mixed-use high-density urban housing block to generate a newdomain for urban social interaction by operating as a massive social condenser. In order to successfully activate this social potential, SUPERBLOCK injects dynamic social concentrations into an open system of new urban life.
