Yilong Futuristic City
Masterplan

Ylong Futuristic City 
International Design Competition

 

A new approach for the future development of Yilong district. Energy Road is: urban energy, urban nature, urban sociality. Before a 21st century climate change panorama, the demand for sustainable economic growth of an increasing world population and consequent, essential new territorial realities, it is necessary to integrate the current eco-city concept with efficient and faster urban solutions implementation.

The Energy Road is based on the concept of Energy Just-in-Time, which provides:

E=MC2 Energy = Management City Complexity 

 The energy road

An adaptable, flexible system that matches to multiple climatic and territorial realities. From the single unit to the complexity of the system. An innovative platform strategically set to distribute renewable energy, oxygen, urban food and soft mobility: a mixed integrated functionalities for a sustainable development. Connecting with the local biodiversity system, Energy Road supports the city's development processes, investing in areas of high urban density and reconnecting natural green spaces into an urban mechanic aimed towards the construction of a unique territorial unit.

 Yilong organic unit

The Mountains landscape, an inspiration source for a natural architectural shape. The horizon, the colors of seasons, the winds dancing in the mountains with their music, more than any other lesson, they unveil the future of an endless architecture, a message for new urban development.

 The mobility

Energy road expects internal displacements to be carried out solely by zero-emissions or electric transportation vehicles, shared or personal, to be powered only by sustainable and renewable energy produced by the system. A series of underground and street level car parks, are available for fossil fueled vehicles from nearby areas.

 Manages

The system manages water cycle, production of compost and fertilizers for the green system and urban farming, both bio waste and waste cycles, the buildings’ energy efficiency, biodiversity and the environmental carbon footprint.

 Equally redistributes

The system equally distributes both energy (Just in Time) and resources improving life quality, increasing oxygen production and the shared urban cultivable surface, reducing urban pollution, promoting urban biodiversity.

 The unit: 1 km

An innovative platform strategically set to distribute renewable energy, oxygen, urban food and soft mobility: a mixed integrated functionalities for a sustainable development. Connecting with the local biodiversity system, Energy Road supports the city’s development processes, investing in areas of high urban density and reconnecting natural green spaces into an urban mechanic aimed towards the construction of a unique territorial unit.

 Yilong futuristic energy road system

A park between myth, tradition, innovation and future. The source of Energy Road’s urban system. An indissoluble link binds man to both earth and heaven, being a source of inspiration for gardens, magic moments, festivities and architectures. All symbols to build and maintain in the future, the sense of unity and harmony that always accompanies us which must be protected.
