The CV08 by Andrew Maynard is a hilarious, improbable, but completely awesome concept design by the celebrated Australian architect and his design teams.

Although not the most practical of solutions to the potential future problem of abandoned suburban sprawl, the CV08 by Andrew Maynard is a walking behemoth that crushes and consumes abandoned (hopefully!) houses while firing seed-planting missiles and terraforming the cleared ground behind it. The concept raises some important concerns about how the process of reclaiming unused city terrain might occur. Stats for Surburb-Smashing Robots Trending: Older & Chilly
