This is a small town I built by mostly plopping buildings. I wanted to have complete control over the city. It has many aspects that i consider crutial to my perfect city. It is compact and transportation is mainly on foot (buses+subway). I hate cars, but, broad avenues are still required. I live in Brazil and I have tried to replicate some of the good things in brazilian cities. Large cities in Brazil often have an historic part of downtown that concentrates government administrative builidings that may still be working as such or that now work as cultural centers. That part of downtown is closely followed by tall office buildings with shops at ground level. Even tough the buildings I plopped on my city dont appear to be that way, think of it as they are. Streets bustling with life day and night, be it downtown or in the residential area. Shops, restaurants, bars, cafés, everything. So here it is. Let me know what you think about it.
This is the civic plaza with subway station and historic buildings.
Here you can see the older more corporativist buildings clore to the beach and to the historic center.
Right in front of the beach you have this beautiful plaza and museums/library/movies for everyone on the city to enjoy.
Here are the posh residential buildings and the Santiago Calatrava Transport Hub that in this distopian city also serves as a cultural center for annual arts expo, and fashion shows, comicon et cetera.
Here is another plaza, but this time with a monument, and a very beautiful very modernist building right close to the beach, past the Atlantic Ave.
Overview of Downtown, beach and knowledge center.
Close up to the knowledge center, with university, an application high school and research centers, as well as a central library. The cool thing about this is that it is close to downtown but also quite reserved.
Overview of Downtown and the residential area.
Another view on the knowledge lands, downtown and the main plaza, for concerts, and open gatherings, like protests et cetera. A place for everyone to meet.
here you can see the new buildings of downtown, the city mall and the university. Students gotta have something to do when their teacher misses class.
Overview of the residential area.
Detail on the most recent buildings.
And finally other angle on the main plaza, the citys heart.
So, what do you think. I think its a quite livable city.
