"The main issue of this project is Happiness. I started from the point that to have a productive city, we need to have happy human beings and for that to happen, we need to create structures able to produce that Happiness. This way, I proposed the creation of a central construction called The Seed of Happiness. This construction will generate other cores, called The production cores. These will energize and create new synergies in the city. I hope that this “seed” can be “planted” in different places giving rise to happy cities in the near future."
