Italian architects to present Vertical City at Dubai summit

DUBAI, November 17, 2019

Italian architecture firm Luca Curci Architects is set to present a project proposal for its ambitious project - Vertical City, a building complex set in water, which on completion will be home to 25,000 people.

A number of renewable energy resources, such as wind, water turbines and solar panels are also incorporated in the design which is being presented for the first time at the Knowledge Summit 2019 in Dubai.

Luca Curci Architects said the project will lay major emphasis on energy storage solutions, water desalination, food production and integrated farming besides following a zero-waste policy.

The project combines sustainability with population density and it aims to build up a zero-energy city-building offering its citizens a healthier lifestyle with no suburbs.

Starting from the analyses of the contemporary skyscraper, conceived as a compact element, and separated from the surrounding space, the project has re-interpreted it in an opened structure, equipped with green areas on each level, natural light and ventilation besides 100 per cent green transport systems.

This new interpretation allows its residents to get into an healthier life-style, in connection with natural elements, re-thinking the traditional concept of community and society, said the top Italian architects ahead of the Dubai summit.

The event, being hosted by The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation, will run from November 19 to 20 under the theme “Knowledge: The Path to Sustainable Development”.-TradeArabia News Service
