Yona Friedman

 
Yona Friedman (born 1923 in Budapest, lives and works in Paris) has since the middle of the 20th century been developing the concept of “mobile architecture” according to which housing and town planning should be conceived by their users and should integrate the unpredictability of future behaviour of the user.
