Awesome new futuristic city in Korea

Netherlands based architects MVRDV has come up with this great design of an incredible new city called Gwanggyo Power Center, located south of Seoul, South Korea. Several organic hill structures combine to form this magnificent city which will be completely self-sufficient and would support 77,000 residents.

The city includes everything (almost) …housing, offices, shops and educational facilities. There is even an internal irrigation system which stores extra water from the buildings and uses it to sustain these green facades. As MVRDV states, “This diverse program has different needs for phasing, positioning and size. To facilitate this all elements are designed as rings. By pushing these rings outwards, every part of the program receives a terrace for outdoor life.” Construction will begin sometime after 2011.
