CV08, the suburb-eating robot

CV08, the suburb-eating robot

Peak oil is approaching. In the next future, most of the oil-dependent suburbs in which we live now will be abandoned and decay, turning into ruins, inhabited only by the few ones who where too fat and too car-dependent to escape back to the city. Little by little, nature will take over suburbs, but this process will be extremely slowly.

In order to give Mother Nature a hand, Andrew Maynard Architects have designed CV08, the suburb-eating robot.

As it wanders through the suburbs, CV08 aspires people, houses and cars with its legs, and turns them back into nature’s products.

Archigram‘s concepts, with a manga touch, together for suburbs renewal.
