LITHE CITY is a design proposal that answers to the current problems

Abrasion carried by the wind. Both types of erosion were used in the development of LITHE CITY due to the fact that they complement each other.

MASTER PLAN


CIRCULATION

Existent roads outside the complex

Existent roads outside the complex are respected as they are considered very important. There will be four acces points to LITHE CITY and four exit points.


Roads inside the complex

provide pedestrians with a greater importance within the complex, for this reason there will be LITHE CITY. 19
