Masterplanning for a New City in Quingpu, Shanghai.


The growth of cities, their influences and the mask which they define on the whole grounds must be reconsidered.

Extending a city should be no longer at the expense of arable land. Economic concerns that guide the new urban issues must be able to coincide with the Same concerns that have established practices for cultivation before the development of cities.

NESSIE project newly supplies the territory with oxygen thanks to the built towers which take place at the heart of the history of the territory.The towers have an open-aired column in their centers which allow oxygenation to go to the lower layer. Oxygenation, development of bacteria in these old asphyxiated strata, it can regenerate a necessary ecosystem to the superficial layers where life andvegetation grow. Groundwater, regulations, redevelopment, their bacteriological regulations in an autonomous way. And it can provide a healthy home to human activities, flora and fauna to immersed areas around the extension of the new town.
