There will be a new linear city



Gilles Gauthier : Architect
Cities offer the concentration needed for work, services and leisure that makes them appealing but on the other hand, the suburbs and the country-side offer the tranquility and the beauty of nature that is just as needed by most. This architectural research aimed at finding a solution that would blend the two lifestyles by making cities with a versatile public transportation more efficient than personal cars that are a source of noise and pollution.

This solution is the Linear City built in height and linearly. Architectural variations are added to modules set up in half-landings. Three transportation systems are inserted in three underground levels: they are superposed one on the other and connected. By being linear, this network is simpler and more efficient and at the same time, the city is located next to the countryside
