santo domingo: elliptic city

the recently opened acropolis museum may enjoy the spotlight at the moment, but it's bernard tschumi's hyperambitious elliptic city project in santo domingo that we have our eyes on. this massive eco-friendly mixed-use project just outside the dominican capital has entered its first phase. it will include a newly established caribbean financial center and office blocks, a hotel convention center, a shopping mall, residential units and recreational areas. it is projected that approximately 30,000 people will live in elliptic city after completion. location: los llanos, santo domingo. © bernard tschumi architects
