Garden City V2.0

The Garden City V2.0 is a guideline to self-build a city. The notion of self-build is understood as setting out all the structural and or-ganizational frameworks of the new settlement (political, economic, social) and the physical construction of the city. Therefore, the guide-line is presented as a system divided by its theoretical and physical components. The theoretical framework is based on the principles of the Garden City which work as social and economic mechanisms.

Although it seems to allow a lot of freedom and adaptability to the user, the system has to be naturally limited by certain constraints or one can say assembled by certain rules. Rules provide a framework that is flexible and adaptable and it can be in filled by all sort of irregularities.
