# MANIFESTO /// Viktor Timofeev
My vision of a near future metropolis is tied to my experience of growing up skateboarding the streets of New York. To a skateboarder, urban objects lose their immediate practical functions and are forced to behave as objects of pleasure, transforming a simple street into a funzone. In this way, a skateboarder’s vision of the metropolis sees the dreams of the 60’s era collectives such as Archigram and the Situationists come true. This logic led me to explore forms found from the street on paper, joining the lineage of fantastical, hypothetical and quasi-utopian architectural situations. With time, street objects were expanded to include all aspects of design that a normal inhabitant of a metropolis is confronted with on a daily basis, recycled and juggled in a non-sensical, humorous way.
