THIS TERRITORIAL

pole designed to provide a range of services to a vast rural surrounding area, is ideally located in India. It is a full pedestrian habitat, no cars and motorcycles always in the way. Cars and trucks can only circulate on the underground level, shown on the drawing is flooded level, since it could be imagined as an inundation during the monsoon season. So all trade activities are located below the ground, whilst all other functions are carried the highest levels.

 

 

 

IN THIS HABITAT

in addition to a limited number of "permanent residences” are also many "holiday houses", designed to accommodate visitors from other the areas served by this territorial center for a limited period of time, for people who need to prolong their stay for business reasons like trade, hospital or medical assistance, banking, law services, and so on. But in general it will be the doctor, the lawyer, the bank clerk, the judge, the specialist, etcetera, who will move in the surrounding territory to offer their services; all aimed to reduce excessive mobility, as far as possible off course. This would allow a strong dynamic organization to the entire surrounding territory, and to maintain traditional housing in rural areas and in small villages at a low market price, so to prevent depopulation of the same and the formation of what we call today a "contemporary city": a monster of asphalt and concrete, good for cars but not for humans. As mentioned in the introductory pages, automated mobility like railways, but also waterways where possible, would be the main link between the pole and its territorial context. All people and goods would move via this railway vectors after reaching points of modal interexchange, a station or a local port linked to the grid and the collective automated transportation system.
