“Sociópolis” neighborhood.

València, Comunitat Valenciana.

Some of the world's top architects participated in this project, which was shown at the MoMa in New York. It was “a new concept of city, of neighborhood and of social and sustainable urbanism that breaks the traditional moulds”. In the end, though, only 5 of the planned 18 buildings were built, and there are no signs from the planned public facilities. The neighborhood is cut off from the rest of the city, and the maintenance of the public space is practically non-existing.
