Ας Φτιάξουμε Μια Πόλη, Είπε

Απόψε, αναγνώστη, διάβασε ετούτο δω το άρθρο για μια ολοκαίνουρια πόλη στην Ινδία που φτιάχτηκε από έναν εκκεντρικό κύριο που άκουσε το "if you build it, they will come" και το πήρε πολύ κυριολεκτικά.

Lavasa will be the first city in India—apart from a few company towns surrounding factories—to be built and governed entirely by a private corporation. It’s also the first city in India to be planned according to the principles of New Urbanism, which advocates walkable cities that commingle business and residential development, offer mixed-income housing, and preserve green space. Lavasa will provide centrally pressurized running water, reliable electricity, sewage treatment, garbage collection, and even fiber-optic connections in every home. These things are so alien in India that when prospective home buyers first saw Lavasa, Gulabchand says, many asked why they couldn’t see water tanks on the roofs, and whether the price of units included a septic tank.
