No-Stop City was a "radical design" architectural project by Archizoom Associati first introduced to the public in 1969. It is a critique of the ideology of architectural modernism that had reached its limits. Andrea Branzi: «The real revolution in radical architecture is the revolution of kitsch: mass cultural consumption, pop art, an industrial-commercial language. There is the idea of radicalizing the industrial component of modern architecture to the extreme.» (Branzi)
