This is the first existing model of an urban bio‐ecological structure. It is based on principles of flexibility and fitness of biological structures, it is able to adjust its height, capacity and use to the different economic, environmental and social conditions of the cities where it is built. Numbers shown, indicate maximum limits and its growing possibilities.
ANY CITY IN THE WORLD, NOT MINDING ITS SOCIAL AND ECONOMICAL DEVELOPMENT, COULD START THE CONSTRUCTION OF BIONIC TOWER, ADAPTING ITS GROWTH, IN HEIGHT AND EXPANSION TO ITS FURTHER URBAN EVOLUTION.
Returning land to nature:
Under the conventional models of “horizontal urbanism” and “low density”, 100.000 inhabitants would occupy an extension of 4 km. diameter wide with an important occupation of the environment.
Bionic Tower Vertical City with capacity for 100.000 inhabitants, uses an area of 1 km. diameter wide, what allows to return nature the land non occupied.
CAN WE ALLOW THE PLANET TO BE ASPHALTED?
High, light and flexible:
Vertical City is inspired by models of nature: lightness and strength of birds bones; flexibility of vegetal structures and capacity of organisms to adapt.
THERE ARE NO TWO EQUAL TREES OF THE SAME SPECIES.
Two unified bionic complexes:
Bionic Vertical City Tower is composed of two bio‐ecological urban complexes one into the other.
One of them is vertically developed being the other one horizontally developed. The first one, Bionic Tower, is composed of twelve vertical neighbourhoods 80 meters high each one of them, separated by safety areas in order to make easier the techno‐economical rationality of its construction in different phases and the eviction in case of emergency. Each neighbourhood, or level, has two groups of buildings, one interior, and another one exterior. Both are situated around huge vertical gardens and pools. The second complex, the “Base Island” forms a complex 1.000 meters diameter in which are distributed medium high buildings, expanded gardens, interior pools and communication infrastructures. The foreseen use of both complexes is extensive: Hotels, Offices, Residential, Commerce, Cultural Buildings, Sports and Leisure.
URBAN PLOTS SHOULD HARMONIZE THE DIFFERENT NEEDS OF “RESIDENT” AND “FLOATING”
