Action Units

We call "action units" the set of private and public activities with spatial properties that one encounters in a metropolis. These units are placed on slabs and the entire megacity is converted into an urban subsoil. This strict distinction between private and public practices ceases to exist when the "action units" of the metropolitan crowd are mixed with each other with an almost humorous mood. Actions like sleep, eat, cultivate, buy, play, rest, swim, watch TV, paint, hug, bathe, sew, ride a bike, pray, exercise, plant, sit, gaze, fight, walk, have fun etc., are some of the practices that stand side by side causing strange, often foreign, combinations, breaking the boundaries between private and public housing, proposing collective ways of coexistence.
