Kaiju (怪獣 kai-jū) is a Japanese word that means "strange beast," but often translated in English as "monster".

“Simian Mobile Disco’s synesthetic video for new tune Cerulean imagines an alternate history where video games of the 1970s had infinite resolution and physics engines behind them, yet for some reason were limited to simple geometric shapes and primary colors. If abstract CGI mixed with hypnotic UK tech-house is your thing, we couldn’t recommend it highly enough." The Verge

When opened, Hala Stulecia was the largest reinforced concrete structure in the world. With a diameter of 65m it was home to the largest dome built since the Pantheon in Rome eighteen centuries earlier.
The piece proposed for the Centennial Hall of Wroclaw is based around the notion of timelessness in architecture, and the idea of what future has meant throughout the 20th century.
Taking the 1910’s as a starting point (the dome was erected in 1913), historical and artistic references were used to reveal the architecture of the space.
By using references such as Fritz Lang’s Metropolis or the utopian projects of Archigram to confront the different visions of the future at different times, Romain Tardy and Thomas Vaquié were interested in trying to create a vision of a future with no precise time reference. A timeless future.
