Cave City by Dennis Christian Schmidt | Redesign the World | Dezeen

The next finalist project in Dezeen’s Redesign the World competition powered by Twinmotion is Dennis Christian Schmidt’s proposal to create a network of underground cities built around climate-regulating lakes.

Called Cave City, Schmidt’s proposal is to create cities deep below the earth’s surface in a bid to protect against climate change and natural disasters such as storms, tornadoes and increasing temperatures.

The proposed cities feature large residential quarters that take the form of colosseum-like structures built around lakes that help to regulate the climate inside the caves.

The ceilings also feature integrated ventilation systems to foster the growth of crops grown in vertical farms.

Redesign the World is the ultimate design competition, which called for new ideas to rethink planet Earth to ensure that it remains habitable long into the future.

Launched in partnership with Epic Games, the contest asked entrants to visualise their concepts using architectural visualisation software Twinmotion.
