Award-winning architects have come up with an extraordinary design for a new self-sufficient city made up of organic ‘hill’ buildings. The cluster of green towers are designed to be home to 77,000 people and also house offices, shops and schools. Architects MVRDV came up with the revolutionary plans in which every floor of each tower is fringed with lush box hedges.
It is hoped this will improve ventilation and reduce energy and water consumption in the eco-friendly city called Gwanggyo. The amazing new city, seen in these visuals, to be built 20 miles south of Seoul in South Korea, is expected to be completed in 2011.
