This blog is dedicated to the idea of creation of a new European Megacity, the so-called Euroarcology, capable to not only face challenges and opportunities brought by globalization and technological progress, but also take full advantage of them, and fit into the growing fabric of the world's urbanized civilization.
The city is to be located in the fast-growing region of Central-Eastern Europe. Three major factors will create pillars for this city of the future:
1. Global In Nature. The main daily language of the city should be English and only English (which sometimes sounds as a heresy in continental Western Europe, thus hampering appearance of truly international hub-cities there). The city will be outside of national boarders, and thus, it will not be fenced by the iron wall of the EU-imposed visa/bureaucratic regulations which isolate it from the best-skilled workers from the rest of the world. With Polish and Hungarian accession into the Euro area the main currency inside of the city will be the Euro.
2. Environmental Friendliness. The city will be based on principles aimed to dramatically reduce the use of the main urban polluter - carbon-driven transport. It will also incorporate other technological achievements that can help to better manage wastes, noise pollutions, other harmful byproducts of human habitation.
3. Innovative Infrastructure. This is not a 2-, but a 3-dimensional city that goes beyond conventional comprehension of how Megacities live. Reduced commute times, no traffic problems, no constraints coming from infrastructural skeletons of hundreds-years old cities. And a fantastic view from virtually every window inside of the city.
