Architecture in »Vetical garden city»
The migration of people to cities, for various reasons, made cities overcrowded, thus destroying the environment in which man carries out his human activity and without it, he would not be able to exist.
The concept of the »Vertical garden city» towards new urban typologies, with the interconnection of the triangle: Man, shelter and environment, has the main purpose to improve urban form and quality.
Such a development would challenge stereotypical models of collective/apartment buildings towards new urbanism, as a reflection of the need to increase the quality of life in everincreasing urban densities.
After migration, people would no longer experience the feeling of being seperated from their villages, because they would already find their village in the city.
This project is designed in the city of Ferizaj in Kosovo, this city has many buildings built without standards, making the city without free spaces, and this was a great challenge to bring to this city liveliness by promoting vertical gardens, social spaces etc.
In each apartment there are enough balconies, also each apartment has the possibility to have enough greenery through balconies, penthouses, two gardens on the fourth floor and numerous green spaces on the ground floor.
I used archicad as the main software by designing the whole project and taking advantage of all the opportunities that this program offers, then in the final presentations I used photoshop for layouts and twinmotion for rendering.
