• Settlements grows horizontally, through the formation of new calotopos
• Inner city doesn’t exist as well as periphery
• Proportional distribution of population density due to parks, infrastructure and industrial area;
• Low building and population density;
• Limit volume of above ground buildings and construction structures;
3. REDUCTION OF TRANSPORT
• Capsule as a form of transportation – underground device for public and goods transport, which is basically functioning as tunnel network. Self-driving electrical capsules are connected by centralized logistical system.
• High speed transport is completely separated from human being.
4. ECOLOGICAL COMPATIBILITY

• Storehouses, industrial buildings, transport buildings and other constructions need to be underground
• Using the energy efficiency technologies and green buildings
• Applying extensive agriculture
5. SYNTHESIS OF LIFE ACTIVITIES
• Combination of the human activities spheres: work, accommodation, entertainment-with agriculture and natural environment
• Integrate recreational areas into the residential, industrial and infrastructure areas
6. ENVIRONMENTAL ART
