What does the city of the future look like? In my opinion, the classic residential towers will be replaced by vertical cities, and the urban ground will be covered by gardens and forests. All vertical cities are being built overhead, and these are composite cities consisting of living space, public space and circulation space. These high-rise buildings are connected by sky bridges with neighboring towers. The idea of the model is to create the public spaces in these towers so that they become conforming to the human scale by creating communities.
