Urban Ant City by STUDIO 1:1 is a spatial installation created by architects and urban planners in the Office for Metropolitan Information (OMI), an event space and bookshop offering “a unique urban perspective,” in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Deposited into a habitat that replicates the city map of Rotterdam, ants meander through the existing streets and landmarks. Over time the ants create their own “streets,” organically remaking the iconic city and encouraging the viewer to contemplate his own impact on the world.
