Peter Cook describes his exploration of making anti-cities that appear and disappear. He proposed an Instant City, which would arrive in villages and create a temporary metropolis for a week and then move on like a circus. His disintegrated city telescoped from the arcadian sector with the mayor’s office, through smaller and smaller businesses, down to a man selling shoelaces on a table. When the London Times asked him to create a proposal for South London, he determined the area was so bad he suggested flooding it.
