Cities will need to be denser & taller in the future..
The concept of a vertical city as sketched out in a new book by architects is something more than a hyper dense gotham though..Yes, there are a lot of towering buildings but also parks, schools, hospitals & restaurant at upper levels as well,essentially it’s a vision of a complete ecosystem in the sky — A place you never have to leave if you don’t want to.
High capacity,high efficiency,ultra – tall buildings occupying a relatively small car free, pedestrian – friendly parcels of land within this footprint are all the self sustaining features of infrastructures,buildings facilities & services necessary for improving the living, working, cultural, entertainment, sports,recreations & leisure qualities of life for residents.
The vertical city is split into multiple levels near the bottom is a raised multiple podium reserved exclusively for pedestrians & bicycles…Below that cars.
Bove first level contains utilities & infrastructure like water,sewer & power storage plants.further up is the street level with entrances to all buildings including a mall – like megabuilding
Further up still are sky lobbies with bracing / bridge connections that make up village centers for shopping,drinking,socializing & exercise the building is made up of multiple towers each as high as one mile.the surroundings spaces is farmland which produces food & also acts as abuffer between existing urban centers & future vertical cities.
The building generate their own energy from renewables sources use future materials like graphene & bioconcrete & mechanical innovations like rope-less elevators that can go to limitless heights..it’s quite a vision…
