ECO CITY,Chengdu Tianfu District Great City

The plan is to develop a self-sustaining, environmentally sensitive 1.3-square-kilometer satellite city outside Chengdu. Energy efficient green building techniques will be implemented and ultimately aim to use 48 percent less energy and 58 percent less water than a conventional development housing a similar number of people.
The main reason why I appreciate a design such as this is due to the fact that urbanization is such a relevant challenge facing civilisation of today. In lieu of such condensed and minimal urban sprawl, Designs such as this needs to be implemented to comply with the changing face of tomorrows world.
