Maccioli is a self-replicating city that multiplies as the population grows. City engineers taught the buildings how to collect raw materials from their environment and manufacture copies of themselves. Over time, one will see a building grow thicker and thicker until it peels off into two. As a citizen, you become accustomed to the constant shifting of room sizes, landscapes, and neighbors. Wallpaper is shed like the skin of a reptile, which becomes evidence of the death and life of the city.
