What if every building in your hometown was totally movable and the entire city could be rearranged on a whim? Jägnefält Milton, a Swedish architecture firm, sought to make this concept a reality in the town of Åndalsnes, Norway where an international redesign competition was being held. Their entry for the contest, a project called “Rolling Masterplan” is an urban planning concept that would completely re-purpose the old, unused railroad tracks in the town, turning them into a base on which they could construct different buildings that could be moved along the tracks and re-positioned. The plan involves building structures such as a park, a concert hall, public baths and even a hotel, as well as 100 houses and could totally revolutionize architecture if brought to life.  The possibilities for an ever-changing, entirely portable city are endless. The Rolling Masterplan wound up winning 3rd place in the redesign competition and brings a whole new meaning to the idea of a “mobile home.” Check out some of the concept art below.
