We knew very early on that we wanted a circular theme going on in the city, and we used the city of Curitiba as inspiration for the layout of residential areas, services and roads.

We also wanted the building to orbit the Earth like a satellite, but it would still lie within the Earth’s atmosphere.

One of the issues i addressed in the drawings was the problem of creating sufficient space for farming. To overcome this obstacle I created raised platforms that would stands hundreds of metres above the city to receive sunlight, and would not be a hindrance to the city.
