Cell-City is an ambitious blueprint for a city for 10 000 inhabitants, which is resilient and ensure an excellent quality of living for its residents.
The 4 pillars of Cell-City
Local networked bioeconomy
The Cell-City should be autonomous in its production means and technologies, and connected to local cities for a sustainable economy.
Evolvable and resilient
Because urban environments change over time, smart cities should be evolvable, while ensuring resilient scale. Urban sprawl is one reason by which cities stops being sustainables.
Low carbon process and techs
Cell-City integrates the use of low tech and green tech to ensure that the energy production, consumption, distribution, and recycling, are optimized.
High living standards
The design of Cell-City should ensure an excellent standard of living, in a pleasant and safe living environment. Access to free education and free health care is our first priority. Access to working places, facilities and hobbies should be downscaled to walking distance thanks to the design of the city. In addition, citizens should be placed at the heart of local decisions. These aspects will nurture the responsible and healthy society of the future.
Our R&D concept is inspired from the biology of living cells.
Cells are made of modules of various functions: energy production, transport, and decision-making process.
They make a good model of how our cities could be: efficient, included in a network, resilient to sprawl, productive, eco-friendly, and evolvable.
Why urban resilience ?
10 billions people are expected by 2055. This is 3 more billions people to house, feed and educate. Under the alarming climate change context, the biodiversity criss, and the increasing constrains in ressources and limitation of our chain of supplies, it is of the upmost importance to build now eco-friendly cities.
