I would lay the city out in an expanding circular ring pattern. There would be a train system that would be laid out like spokes on the circles. The inner most circle would be an arts/entertainment district, with your galleries, cinemas, sport stadiums, civic centers, and restaurants. The next ring would be shops/business/hotel/restaurant district. The next ring would have your schools, hospitals, government offices and general public services, this ring would also have condominiums and high rise public housing. The next ring would be residential, a building height limit of 5 stories, restaurants would also be allowed in this ring along with smaller corner store type on convenience and pharmacies so that residents don't have to go all the way to the city center just to get small items. The next ring would be large expanse of open land and farms. The final ring would have your power plants, waste management facilities, and all the other industrial facilities that you wouldn't want in the city, but need for jobs and to make the city run. All the rings would include parks and open spaces for residents to use.

My own city?!

Hmm, well first I'd make sure groundbreaking happened in a place where the least amount of wildlife would be affected.

Next I'd look at what natural resources we could use for construction and export. I'd like to make the city profitable from the get go. I'd build near a water source of course and use the land we dig up to build dams and levees.

Once irrigation and waste management has been sorted I'd move on to the power grid. I'd aim to have 50% of my cities power come from solar, wind and water. The rest would come from nuclear.

I'd look at the natural disaster risks that face my city and only approve building designs that can cope with them.

Once zoning is done for residential and government use I'd put out an open invitation to businesses that want to help my city grow. I'd only consider businesses that have environmental conservation, medical advances, the arts, scientific research, technology and charity as their man goal.

I'll set up affordable and practical public transportation and keep things clean with a well paid clean up crew. I'll encourage car-pooling and a cycling culture to keep people fit and reduce pollution.

When my city expands I'll build up, not out.

Finally, once we see good cash flow I'll invest in things like space travel and scientific expeditions.

Since I am in love with the little quiet villages from Mushishi, I would love to try living in one of those!


It looks so peaceful!
