Item description for Globus Cassus by Boris Groys Christian Waldvogel...

Part flight of fancy, part Star Trek set, part seemingly drug-induced delusion, Globus Cassus is a solution to a global dilemma, which remains the same size while housing an ever-increasing global population. The catalyst for the project as described by its creator, artist Christian Waldvogel: "The rapidly increasing population notice that their planet will soon be too small. The Earth is dismantled to provide building material. This is taken away to create Globus Cassus, a new, much bigger habitat, thought out from scratch." And so begins the story of converting the Earth into a gigantic hollow structure. The project, precisely worked out and described in detail, breaks through the bounds of architecture to continue the story of our great contemporary Utopias. Globus Cassus is the core of the Swiss contribution to the 9th Architecture Biennale in Venice, and this book examines the novel project through a series of drawings, diagrams, and photographs of three-dimensional models.
