 ArchiNed News: New Babylon
Constant Nieuwenhuis has worked over twenty years on the development of his utopia New Babylon.
The results of Constant's efforts can be seen again in their full glory for the first time since a long while.
Constant commented on this in the beginning of the 1960's: "The question, how the people would live in a society without hunger, without exploitation, and also without labour.

The advent of the SI and Constant's later architectural utopia's of New Babylon can be viewed within the larger context of the growing wireless communication era of the 20th century, in many ways carrying the utopian dreams of the inventors long after the technological goals have been reduced to profit and furtherance of political propagandizing.
Constant envisioned this system as a "kaleidoscopic whole" that bore no resemblance to the past concepts of community life and instilled a sense of nomadism.
It was this reasoning that forced Constant from the group in 1960 when his "visionary urban designs", so highly regarded earlier, were "criticized as public relations for the integration of the masses into capitalist technological civilizations" (McDonough, 2002).

 Junk for Code: The Situationist's new Bablyon
The Situationist response to the city of the commodity and spectacle is a dreaming of the city of tomorrow.
It is a utopian scheme for a new mode of dwelling and new society by Constant A. Nieuwenhuis.
Constant attained a prominent position in the world of experimental architecture in the 1960s', but this influence faded and New Bablyon as a situationist city has been forgotten by urban designers.

The works of 1960's idealists, such as Constant, Archigram and Buckminster Fuller, are infused with today's popular culture and contrasted with existing cityscapes, as a means to explore the clashing of ideals likely to occur during the negotiation process for a new utopian society.
Constant Nieuwenhuis' proposal of a New Babylon is used as a departure point for this current body of work.
Constant drafted a plan for a mobile utopian society whose production needs were to be completely met by automation, thus liberating citizens from work.

 Henri Lefèbvre (1901 - 1991)
They were the intermediaries: the group made up of architects, with the Dutch architect Constant in particular and the painter Asger Jorn and people from Brussels -- it was a Nordic group, a group with considerable ambitions.
And the pivotal figure was Constant Nieuwenhuys, the utopian architect who designed a Utopian city, a New Babylon -- a provocative name, since in the Protestant tradition Babylon is a figure of evil.
So this text was the beginning of a whole new research that developed in the following years, especially since Constant was very close to popular movements; he was one of the instigators of the Provos, the Provo movement.

century to the question posed by Constant in the latter half, namely what would our environment be like if one lived “in a society that knows neither famine nor exploitation nor work, in a society in which, without exception, anyone could give free rein to his creativity” (Nieuwenhuis, 1974).
It was in this informatic-based architectural development that the SI found themselves encountering and responding to in the 1950’s and 60’s and, along with ideas of the dérive of the situation and the moment of Lefebvre, led to the utopian architectural constructs of Constant’s New Babylon.
The dérive of the Situationist International is built upon the drift of social interaction the assignment of new situations and interaction based on a spontaneity that responded to the advent of information technologies and the capitalist shift in urban planning.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Socialism
This body, while calling itself Socialist, rejected the Marxian in favour of Jevonsian economics, and devoted itself to the social education of the public by means of lectures, pamphlets and books, and to the spread of Collectivist ideas by the "permeation" of public bodies and political parties.
Immense as have been its achievements in this direction, its constant preoccupation with practical measures of reform and its contact with organized party politics have led it rather in the direction of the "Servile State" than of the Socialist Commonwealth.
But the united efforts of the various Socialist bodies, in concert with trade unionism, resulted, in 1899, in the formation of the Labour Representation Committee which, seven years later, had developed into the Labour Party, with about thirty representatives in the House of Commons.

 Cobra's Legacy: Angst on Canvas   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The comparative conservatism in the Netherlands can be explained as stemming from the oppressive artistic regime, or "kulturkammer," that Germany imposed upon the country during its occupation.
Thus, when Dutch painter Constant met Jorn in Paris in 1946, he was still clinging to cubism as a model.
Jorn, Dutch artists Appel, Constant and Corneille, and Belgian writers Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret nodded to communist nomenclature when they set up the International of Experimental Artists in 1948 (Cobra is a later acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam, nothing loftier), affirming the group's commitment to social change.

 Actually Existing: Centred on conservation
One or two of us thought of you - in your role as the public face of the Archigram group - as the single person most responsible for ripping off, recuperating and publicising some architectural ideas put forward in the early 1960s by Constant Nieuwenhuis and the Situationist International.
They were flawed ideas at best, predicated on an odd sort of tarmac-the-world techno-utopianism - the SI abandoned them quite rapidly, and Constant himself followed suit before very long.
Archigram's jazzed-up and watered-down variations on Situationist themes did little more than make a certain kind of 'radical' architectural brutalism look alternative (which it really wasn't) and frivolous (which it certainly isn't).

In 1957 Friedman settled in Paris and during that period he maintained contact with figures he had met through CIAM, such as Jacob Bakema and later Gerrit Rietveld from the Netherlands, Frey Otto, Kenzo Tange and Le Corbusier.
There is an obvious affinity between his work and the post-war tradition that focused on lightweight structures in an urban context - with designers such as the already mentioned Otto as well as Richard Buckminster Fuller, John Habraken, and the artist Constant Nieuwenhuis.
This affinity mainly concerns the external characteristics of Friedman's work and not the essential underlying motives that led Friedman to such forms, motives based on the individual's exercise of free choice.

The leaflets were followed by more elaborate pamphlets announcing the creation of the White Plans.
Constant Nieuwenhuis, another artist, was instrumental in shaping the White Philosophy, which considered work (especially mundane factory labor) obsolete.
Provo’s renunciation of work appealed to the Nozems - and marked an important ideological split with capitalism, communism and socialism, all of which cherished work as a value in itself.

But there were also several cases in which the works, and the linkage between different works in the same wing, both satisfied the curator's intentions and produced that stimulus to our senses and intensification of our anxieties that made a visit to this show so gratifying.
One of the more surprising juxtapositions was the grouping of Dutch artist Constant Nieuwenhuis's plans for a New Babylon, 1956/1974, with drawings from the '50S by Hungarian-born French sculptor Nicolas Schoffer (1912-92).
These designs and models revealed visionary architectural perspectives that even today retain the power to challenge the viewer's spatial imagination.

There are also some architects propose large structures that seem to float over the earth, as the new form to integrate with the nature based on minimizing the buildings' footprint that lay onto the nature.
Such as the 'instant city', 'walking city' and 'sin city' megastructures imaged by the Archigram group in England, the ironic utopias of the Italian group Superstudio, the neo-utopian structures created in France by Jean-Louis Chaneac and Antti Lovag and Dutch artist Constant Nieuwenhuis's New Babylon.

Nevertheless, the group managed during this period to attract members from Algeria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Sweden, and the US, [2] thus attaining international status.
It is possible to attribute its ‘rotating’ membership to the group’s “policy of aiming for constant agreement on key matters,” [3] which often resulted in ad hominem attacks among the members and consequent expulsions from the group.
Nevertheless, during this period the situationists were active in theoretical as well as artistic work, often capturing public attention with modes of action aiming to scandalize and provoke the public, as well as the orthodox Left.
