The Post Humanist City_Graduation Thesis

Introducing an urban model that provides a Post Humanist desert city, which is infrastructurally self-sufficient with the possibility but not based on the necessity of human habitability. 

The project utilizes the aspects of sustainability, infrastructure, and density while speculating the finance-driven ghost-urbanisms to create a new form of an autonomous desert metropolis. This metropolis pushed beyond superficial notions of liability to explore the options of a Post Humanist city.
Infrastructure is always a fundamental driver of urban form. For this project is inspired by urban models such as the Aerotropolis, which selects a particular infrastructure and organizes everything around it. 
The post-Humanist city accepts sustainability as a leading ideology of the 21st century; therefore, there is a solar power plant instead of an airport at the center. Concentrated solar plants use mirrors or lenses to focus a large area of sunlight onto a small area. The greater the number of reflectors will generate more energy, which produces the idea of the density.
