Plans for China’s first Self Sufficient City , Chengdu Tianfu.

“Great City will demonstrate that high-density living doesn’t have to be polluted and alienated from nature. Everything within the built environment of Great City is considered to enhance the quality of life of its residents. Quite simply, it offers a great place to live, work and raise a family.”

Chicago based Architects Adrien Smith & Gordon Gill presented their plans for China’s first Self Sufficient and Carless City Chengdu Tianfu. This city offers solutions for  a overcrowded infra-structure and the high-level of pollution many China Urban Centers are suffering from. Chengdu Tianfu city shows that Urban life can be close to nature and work together for a sustainable future./source 

Thanks to green building techniques and use of renewable energy technology, Smith + Gordon expect that Great City will use 48 percent less energy and 58 percent less water than a conventional development with a similar population size. It will also produce 89 percent less landfill waste and generate 60 percent less carbon dioxide.
