silk road city
asgabat - turkmenistan, competition

Ages ago, the Silk Road offered the very experience of traveling: indeed, its extension forced the users to live by traveling. Today, if the organizational question of time-zones manifests similar issues, the establishment of a Euro-Asiatic high-speed rail could bring new life to them. Thus, the project proposes a new kind of city to accompany this rail: by articulating different space-time conditions in the form of stacked floors, this city project aims at facilitating a localized coordination among the extremes of an intercontinental infrastructure.
