Hypercity 2130

Urban extension as accumulation to existing mobiliy-infrastructures

Hypercity is a urbanistic and architectural vision against the lack of ideas in contemporary urban development, which today only relays on overflowing urban agglomerations with unrestrained vertical growth. Hypercity in contrast, wants to use existing resources and infrastructures more efficiently for new habitats in order to bring people again closer to landscapes and ecosystems. Urban growth is not organised centralistic but is embedded insularly into nature and is closely linked in an intelligent way with the further development of our mobility-infrastructures.
