City Futura by B+U Architects

“City Futura” is a visionary urban design proposal by Los Angeles-based firm B+U for an expansion of the City of Milan set in the year 2210. The project is part of a development plan for fifteen different sites located on the outer ring connected by the Milan Metro line.

City Futura is superimposed over the existing city leaving most of its buildings untouched and tapping into existing infrastructure and expand it. Via Evolo.

I think the design is far too sci-fi and looks like some sort of alien invasion, though there are some beautiful shapes there and it looks really phenomenal as a sculpture (see below). Interesting idea about leaving pre-existing buildings intact and expanding them...
