Frame City by Fernando Donis | Redesign the World | Dezeen

Fernando Donis' proposal to create new habitable topographies in which humanity and nature coexist has won first place in Dezeen's Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion. Donis' Frame City concept aims to undo the damage to nature and people's wellbeing caused by a century of rapid urbanisation. Each high-density city, which is designed to house a million people, is formed of mountain-like terraced structures made from cross-laminated timber, which would be built to frame natural landscapes. Roads and private vehicles would be abandoned in favour of pedestrian and cycling infrastructure and careful city planning to ensure that necessary services and amenities are within a 15-minute walk or cycle of people's homes. Donis imagines that each city would be designed to integrate with and complement its natural surroundings, creating a diverse network of different urban settlements, which would lead to rich cultural exchanges and tourism. The proposal beat over 100 entries and 14 other finalists to win the Redesign the World competition, which called for radical proposals to rethink planet Earth. "Donis' proposal for a new topography that is inhabitable for people while providing for nature is powerful, compelling and unlike any other entry we received," said the Redesign the World judges. "There have been many attempts to bring more greenery to our cities to fuse nature and architecture, but Frame City approaches the challenge in a really innovative and memorable way." Redesign the World is the ultimate design competition, which called for new ideas to rethink planet Earth to ensure that it remains habitable long into the future. Launched in partnership with Epic Games, the contest asked entrants to visualise their concepts using architectural visualisation software Twinmotion.
