Welcome to La Estrella, a truly unique and unforgettable floating city outside of Cartagena as a way to decrease its traffic congestion.
La Estrella Project is designed to highlight the uses and advantages of high tech for floating buildings!
Dive in the wonder that is this architectural design. Discover how a proposal arises from its location, multiple bio-inspiration, zoning and high technology.
La Estrella has residential, commercial and touristic areas, making it a place where you can enjoy the marvels of the sea, individually and as a community, while carrying out regular day-to-day activities.
We´ve designed it thinking about the outside areas of Cartagena, between the main city and Serena del Mar.
A bio-inspired concept design based on organic forms and living sea creatures.
For the configuration of the island, the morphology of the starfish was used, with different height volumes, giving it a hierarchy of radial order.
Each building type distinguishing itself by their special relationships between them and the sea.
The Estrella design can be repeated multiple times, growing from a large-scale neighborhood to a city. Each polyfunctional hybrid cell mixes various types of buildings.
Each module would have solar energy thanks to photovoltaic cells which are integrated into their surfaces in a Voronoi turtle shell pattern.
If you were to either work, live or visit La Estrella, you would be experiencing great sunrises, sunsets and a whole new concept for a floating neighborhood or city, the first of its kind in Colombia.
