summary During the '60s, theorists and architects such as Yona Friedman proposed visions for megastructures where residents could freely come and build their units with individual variations. However, there were no technological means to build such structures, and these visions appeared to be unrealistic at the time. This paper discusses how those visions could be re-envisioned through the use of anticipated new technologies and speculates about possible structures and their impacts on our living.
