Utopia portrays how the natural landscape has been modified to meet our contemporary needs. The growth of global populations has led to rapid urbanization and the emergence of megacities and megastructures.
This scene shows a complex transportation network of cars and an automated driverless metro system. After extracting the existing landscape, "nature" has been reintroduced in a controlled form.
The chaos of rapid population growth and the subsequent need to control human movement is met with cutting edge technological solutions, ornamental plants, and cultural motifs built into the urban landscape.
Chaos meets order, creating a pattern of repetition and saturation. Koopmans deems this phenomenon the 'poetry of form', a theme that can be found in much of his work.
