Car-Free City in China will decrease the requirement of personal-transport!
Trust the Chinese to come up with some of the most unconventional ways to baffle and inspire the world. The country has chalked out a 78 million square foot site outside Chengdu in central China. The space will be developed into a one-of-a-kind city that will require no cars! To play home to nearly 80,000 residents, the city will be built from ground up, literally, and is a project by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture. Called the “Car-Free City”, this project will significantly decrease the requirement of a car!
The “Car-Free City” will make use of electricity-powered shuttles to get people around town. Also, the homes in this city will be connected ingeniously to enable quicker travel on foot. The city will also include an eco-park that will treat wastewater and solid waste, generating power in the bargain. In all, this epitome of modern-day green architecture will help decrease energy use by 48%, water use by 58%, and produce 89% less waste!
