Ice shards city. Nizhny Novgorod (Russia)

The new quarter “ice shards city” born like a citizen’s dimension area. A new smart quarter with a high quality life, through greens areas, public spaces and driverless car system, but without the traffic and chaos typically of largest cities.

New concept of city will be the new quarter “Ice shards city”, so named from the polyhedron’s shapes of the future buildings, expected with stagger 5 floor and insides double volumes, unconnected from the skins facades builded in translucent materials.

This buildings are a contemporary idea deduce of traditional Volga’s fisherman's house, located by river and gathered in small town.
