Synopsis: Grimm City is a spatial extrapolation of the Fairytales by the Brothers Grimm. An architectural satire, which foretells a future state run by creatures with Grimm-esque attributes of gluttony and greed taken perversely out of context. Whilst being lampoonist and satirical this architectural fairytale draws uncanny parallels with what many believe is the way cities are run today. Corrupt politicians, fraudulent banks, gluttonous churches and a great GDP are common in both the Grimm City and our own cities.
