The design of KA CARE conjures a landscaped oasis of elegant terraces, cool squares, private courtyard houses and dramatic bridges. This new city will be flexible, parametric and open-source – ensuring that the project evolves and adapts in the best possible way as it grows over space and time. The design for the new city of KA CARE lies within a rich lineage of innovative and investigative projects for systematizing organic growth, yet it also stakes out crucial differences. Its crucial innovation is its core contemporary use of the latest digital technologies to produce an interactive digital model inseparable from both the design and operations of the city. A translucent solar canopy floats ethereally above the inhabited areas, producing vital energy and improving thermal comfort beneath it, threaded with systems and services for nourishing and optimizing the city. This concept will lead the way to many low carbon city refurbishment projects in the hot arid regions of the world where zero carbon energy, modern infrastructure and micro-climate enhancement are so badly needed.
