A City on Rails Always Has the Best View

Why should pipes and tubes pin an entire city down? "A Rolling Master Plan," a new design from Swedish architecture firm Jagnefalt Milton, makes public spaces like concert hall and hotels rearrangeable on old railway lines.

The design puts modular buildings such as hotels, concert spaces, and public baths on railways new and old, allowing them to be adjusted for events such as concerts or festivals or more permanently rearranged for longer term changes, like the seasons.

DISCUSSION

Old rail lines that are not being used any more are being taken up for the "scrap metal" all around me and I am surprised it hasnt happened there too. The paths they were laid along have given birth to some great (and long!) hike and bike trails, so not only wwere the metal rails recycled, so was the land.
