Hypercity 2130

A visionary concept for urban growth corridors within natural spaces

Hypercity is an urban model that increases the natural space necessary for a healthy ecosystem to 50% by attaching it to existing mobility infrastructures. The hypothesis describes a futuristic agglomeration stretching along the A24 Berlin – Hamburg highway. Existing resources are efficiently used for new habitats and the Human is firmly integrated into stable ecosystems between plants and animals.
