China's new -fully green- city

5 posts in this topic

Most people perceive China as a greatly polluted, overcrowded country, with little to no interest in renewable energy and a sustainable future. But that legacy is changing.

Chicago-based architects Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill have unveiled plans for Chengdu Tianfu District Great City, a self sustainable satellite city which offers insightful solutions to the crowded infrastructure, murky traffic and great pollution that plague major China cities.

The city’s main focus is to avoid the high energy consumption and carbon emissions associated with suburban sprawl. According to the architects, it will take no more than 8 years to finish it, from the moment work is started (that’s China for you – just takes 8 years to build a city). When completed, it will house about 30.000 families, totaling 80.000 people.
