A visionary concept for a biophilic smart-city in Mauritius, done in 2021. Further details will be announced.
Centered around a FIA full-electric car racing circuit, the city is an opportunity growth for much more. It is park, an electric motorsport complex, a residential, a commercial, a business and innovation center, an entertainment, healthcare and meditation area and a manifesto for a sustainable development where technology embraces tradition and nature blends with architecture.
The design evolved naturally in the literal sense. Growing organically, from the seeds of the existing topography, the vegetation, and the waterways. These became a pattern that slowly transformed into a zoning diagram, circulation network and ultimately into architecture.
Above everything else, the biophilic nature as the main goal and guiding light, either in the relation with the natural, in the use of the materials and technology, in the patterns, the details, the fragmentation and human scale approach.
The project is currrently awaiting feedback from authorities.
