A city for 150 000 inhabitants.

City/ architecture/ joy/ illusion/ formality?

Formula 1 racing tracks city.

Urban utopias of future, has been always connected to industrial progress of society. Since the invention of car, we struggle with urban euphoria of speed, time and accessibility.

We propose a city, where transport is senseless; we don’t leave the beloved city, where driving is just symbolic.

Driving becomes one of the delights of a city/state/country with a unique concentration of world’s fastest cars ever.

In desert, the structure creates shelters to its interior vegetal universe. On sea, like nowadays synthetic island still life, it protects against coastal recession.

The world’s fastest electric car/334km/h/ was built in 2009.

Importance relies in oportunity to use our toys.
