移动的大都市

【移动的大都市】想象一下生活在一个可以移动的巨型的大城市(宫崎骏的动画《哈尔的移动城堡》),坦克式的履带可以使这座城市整体移动,以便靠近寻找最好的资源和风景,并提供更好的工作。日前马德里的建筑系学生Manuel Dominguez正在尝试将这一概念付诸实践。这座大都市包含所有的必备设施包括运动器材,餐厅,学校,医院和图书馆,并使用清洁能源如风力涡轮机,太阳能电池板和氢能源植物等。

 

The city with LEGS: Amazing plans for eco-friendly walking metropolis that could go in search of better jobs and scenery

  • Named the ‘Very Large Structure’, the design was created by Madrid-based architectural student Manuel Dominguez
  • The nomadic city would use caterpillar tracks – similar to the ones used for tanks – to roam around the world
  • The design builds on an idea proposed almost 50 years ago by British architect Ron Herron to develop a 'Walking City'

Imagine living in a sustainable city with legs that could move anywhere in search of better jobs and resources.

Your postcode would constantly change as you’re taken around the world on board a gigantic caterpillar-like metropolis. 

It might seem like an absurd concept, but this is exactly what is being proposed by Madrid-based architectural student Manuel Dominguez.

In his vision, the nomadic city would use caterpillar tracks – similar to the ones used for tanks – to move to areas were work for residents is easily available.

'I wanted to built territorial management between matter and energy, that will bring several positive effects,' Mr Dominguez told MailOnline.

'These include re-equilibrating the population between rural and cities, environment renewal and offering new employment,'  

Named the ‘Very Large Structure’, the walking metropolis would have everything you’d expect from a city, including sports facilities, restaurants, universities, hospitals and libraries. 

This isn’t the first time someone has come up with the idea of a moving city. British architect Ron Herron’s ‘Walking City’ was first proposed in the 1960s.

In the architecture journal Archigram, Mr Herron suggested building huge intelligent robotic structures that could freely roam the world.

He proposed that various walking cities could interconnect with each other to form larger 'walking metropolises' when needed, and then disperse.

The ‘Very Large Structure’ develops Herron’s vision by proposing clean energy generation on board using wind turbines, solar panels and hydrogen energy plants. 

Mr Dominguez said that the fact that the city moves around could be a way to encourage reforestation rather than destroying the surrounding environment.

It can be easy to dismiss the design as yet another student project. But according to Mr Dominguez, the Very Large Structure is theoretically possible to build. 

'Even though I am very attracted to science fiction and utopical and distopical architecture, I was more interested in investigating real life technology,'  Mr Dominguez told MailOnline.

'These included open-air mining machinery, shipyard online pharmacy installations, logistic and management in super-ports and super vessels, space technology and  eco-villages.'

The design may look like a bizarre concept, but with a number of the world’s major cities in the midst of a slowdown, it may not be as futuristic as you might think. 

'I think it could exist some day maybe at other scale,' added Mr Dominguez.

'Maybe in the way it relates and deals with territory, maybe the way in which we built and think about architecture and urbanism, maybe in the way we manage energy and waste.'
