The new urban quarter will be about 10 sq. km in size – roughly the same as the Berlin Mitte district. Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the park’s buildings will mirror the rock formations and green plains. Extending from the mountain ridge in the south and to the bay in the northeast, the site will feature 8 rock-like blocks with soft contours and flowing nature corridors. Short distances between the blocks, along with mixed uses and higher density, support walkability and energy conservation.

A Siberian Eco-city Inside a One Kilometer Crater

A Siberian Eco-city Inside a One Kilometer Crater | scatol8® |

Eco-city 2020 is a proposal for the rehabilitation of the Mirniy industrial zone in Eastern Siberia, Russia designed by the innovative architectural studio AB Elis Ltd.

The project would be located inside a giant man-made crater of more than one kilometer in diameter and 550 meters deep that used to be one of the world’s largest quarries. The idea is to create a new garden city shielded from the harsh Siberian environmental conditions and instead, attract tourists and residents to Eastern Siberia, with the ability to accommodate more than 100,000 people. The new city is planned to be divided in 3 main levels with a vertical farm, forests, residences, and recreational areas.

One of the most interesting aspects of the proposal is the glass dome that will protect the city and would be covered by photovoltaic cells that will harvest enough solar energy for the new development. A central core houses the majority of the vertical circulations and infrastructure along with a multi-level research center. The housing area is located in the first level with outdoor terraces overlooking a forest in the center of the city, in order to create a new type of highly dense urbanism in harmony with nature.
