New Urbicande

New Urbicande is a reconstruction, on an island of the Neptunic Ocean, of the ancient Urbicande city, destroyed by an earthquake. This project was realised by a former student of Robick, Gustav B. Maranje, based on the urbatect's own plans. The “North Shore” (built on the other side of a canal) was done according to Robick's original project, something that never happened in Urbicande itself. The new city can be reached only by air, the sea being quite dangerous in that area 1).
