Hi, I'm really interested in working on a new city for my thesis.
A city that would be pragrammaticly planned from the study of several cities by their production of food, waste, Co2... their industry and transportation...
The aim is to designed a city which would be more efficient and sustainable, not just because of new technologies but to focus on morphologies and typologies, programmatic complementarity and careful planning.
I would like some help to find a good country/site for this project. I was thinking that if the city has for example a huge capacity for recycling it would be smart to put it in India where the garbage is already sent from all over the world but treated in a dangerous way. That way it would create a new local economy based on existing international flow.It would also create safer working conditions, jobs for the people in the slums and maybe an impact on world recycling.
Please comment if you have a good idea of where to implement a new city (the recycling city is an example it could be something else).
I would also appreciate very much references and books to read!
