Here are some of the most impressive futuristic cities some of which are under construction recently
Smart Forest City, Mexico
Smart Forest City, near Cancun, Mexico, is designed to be a “pioneer” of more eco-efficient developments by Italian architect Stefano Boeri. The project is intended to be built on a 557-hectare site. According to the architect, it will contain 7.5 million plants, including numerous species of trees, shrubs, and bushes chosen by botanist and landscape architect Laura Gatti. “Thanks to the new public parks and private gardens, thanks to the green roofs and to the green facades, the areas actually occupied will be given back by nature through a perfect balance between the amount of green areas and building footprint,” the firm told Dezeen.
About 150,000 hectares of land are planned, Telosa City is thought to be built on cheap land in Appalachia or the American West desert. Conceived by billionaire Marc Lore, Telosa’s goal is to “create a new city in America that sets a global standard for urban living, expands human potential, and becomes a blueprint for future generations.” Imagined as a sustainable city and designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, renewable resources will power the urban area; green spaces will be protected and prioritized; and water will be stored, cleaned, and reused on site.
The Line is a futuristic urban living project which contains a multi-dimensional aspect of the requirements of the future. It is called the civilizational revolution that puts humans first, providing an unprecedented urban living experience while preserving the surrounding nature. The extraordinary design of The Line will be 170 kilometers long and 500 meters above sea level, and 200 meters wide. According to Gizmodo, construction has already begun in the city, which is expected to be completed by 2030.
Oceanix Busan, South Korea
Oceanix Busan will measure 6.3 hectares, accommodating a community of 12,000 people. Each neighborhood in the floating city will serve a specific purpose, such as living, research, and lodging. Per neighborhood, 30,000 to 40,000 square meters will be dedicated to mixed-use programs. The project aims to regenerate marine ecosystems by encouraging the growth of coral reefs underneath. Floating-city development firm Oceanix, and architectural firms Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Samoo Architects & Engineers, are behind the UN-backed project. The project was unveiled at the UN Headquarters on April 26 and is expected to be completed in 2025.
Chengdu Sky Valley, China
Chengdu Sky Valley is a competition entry for the Future Science and Technology City that fuses technology with nature, urban with rural, and modernity with tradition. It celebrates the dualities inherent to Chengdu and creates a unique symbiosis between them. Through a computational workflow developed by in-house tech taskforce MVRDV NEXT, Chengdu Sky Valley engages with multiple stakeholders to balance the competing needs of the area on the outskirts of one of China’s emerging cities.
