In his project Symbiosis Campus, Fernando Carrera focuses on how underused railway yards can profit as an opportunity for redefining a possible coexistence between diverse species in the city. He started by analyzing that by 2050, two-thirds of the world’s population is expected to live in cities. This means that 7 billion people will inhabit super dense urban landscapes.

His project consists in burying the train tracks in a system of galleries and then gradually turning the railway yards into reserves for biodiversity with a programmatic diversity that responds to the demand of the city or the immediate context. This will generate a green highway allowing diverse animal species to wander freely towards the center of the city and between the different railway yards. The main value of this project is to envision a different type of city and urban planning away from the anthropocentric approach.
