According to the Insider, the city promises to provide a lot of greenery to its residents. Its streets will be reserved for pedestrians and cyclists, and as per a press release, it will provide a “full life in times of confinement”.

“We cannot continue designing cities and buildings as if nothing had happened. Our proposal stems from the need to provide solutions to the various crises that are taking place in our planet at the same time, in order to create a new urban life based in the circular bioeconomy that will empower cities and communities,” Guallart was quoted as saying.

The buildings in the city will also have something called a ‘metabolic system’, to integrate the production of enerygy, recycle water, food, and material reuse, so as to live sustainably.
