Skycar City is planned for an occupancy of 5 million people. Skypaths are seen radiating from the major programmatic nodes (business centers, schools, stadia, residential clusters, and recreation) located at various heights within the city. This model represents the entire city, 3.5 km x 2.5 km x 800 m.
Adjacent skypaths are aggregated taking advantage of vaying intensities and forming hierarchical networks.
A collaborative studio exploring possibilities for extreme urban density and the integration of infrastructure and architecture as a result of fully three-dimensional transportation.
All work on this project was done in conjunction with other students.

The reverse scenario, cities sprawl spreads to a geographic scale as a result of faster travel speeds. Here Tianjin, China supports a suburban population 250 km in radius.

In this scenario programmatic mass completely envelops the skypaths, pressing for direct access. Garden terraces dominate the 'outside' face.
