Even more fanciful than London's "endless City" and inspired by the rorm of the lotus flower, is Tsvetan Toshkov's, "City in the sky' which he claims is a concept embodying an imaginary tranquil oasis above the mega—dcveloped and polluted city, where one can escape from the everyday noise and worries " Although a delightful exercise in creating a utopia away from the strains of modern city life, the engineering stresses within the proposed structure raise questions about its practicality.
Despite the ambitious, indeed grandiose, designs of future cities requiring considerable planning, rapid urban renewal may become vital in response to natural disasters notably earthquakes and hurricanes.While nobody would wish such misfortunate on any city with the human tragedies engendered, the opportunity presented to rebuild a devastated city to both improve its sustainability and to reduce the risk of future disaster cannot be overlooked, not least as an honour to those who have suffered.Two examples are the Wenchuan and Qingchuan districts of Sichuan Province, severely damaged by the 2008 earthquake, which are now in the reconstruction process.
