Kaohsiung Station, Taiwan

In the major and economic city of Kaohsiung, where more than 2.7 million people live, one metro is no longer enough. That is why the metro station is now being converted into an 8.5-hectare train station complex.

It is intended to be the greenest high-speed transport hub in the world – with publicly accessible rooftop landscaping and green spaces surrounding the station.

The facility is intended not only as a transportation hub, but also as a destination for excursions. Local markets, a traveling library and open-air concerts aim to attract people to the leafy centre.

Olympic and Paralympic Village, Paris

Paris will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2024. To accommodate athletes from all over the world, the city is creating a new village – the Athletes' Village.

The village is located about 7 kilometers north of central Paris and extends from the town of Saint-Denis through Saint-Denis and Lille-Saint-Denis. The plan is to build a bridge connecting the cities with a lot of green space – on the roofs of buildings, between building blocks. This not only benefits athletes, but also benefits insects and birds. About 9,000 trees will be planted around the complex to make the city attractive to small animals.

During the Olympics from June 26 to August 11, the Village will accommodate more than 14,000 athletes and their staff, and during the Paralympics from August 28 to September 8, the Village will be home to approximately 9,000 people from around the world. .

After the sporting event ends, the village will be transformed into a modern residential and activity area. It is planned to construct about 2,800 housing units, of which 25 percent will be social housing. A large public park and several recreational areas along the banks of the Seine. The village will be handed over to Paris on March 1, 2024.

Notre Dame, Paris

We will stay in Paris for a while. At the end of 2024, one of Paris's iconic tourist attractions is scheduled to reopen its doors: the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Notre Dame, which was partially destroyed by a major fire in 2019.

International Land and Maritime Centre, China

In terms of population, Chongqing is one of the largest cities in the world. About 32 million people live in the sprawling city in southwestern China. What is the city still missing? Giant skyscraper.

The International Land and Sea Center has been under construction since 2016. When completed, it will be the largest building in Chongqing – and one of the tallest in the country.

The four high-rise urban buildings will change the face of Frankfurt, at least that's what Dutch architect Ben van Berkel promised.

The quartet aims to change not only the appearance of the city, but life as well. It is planned to create 600 apartments, offices, hotels, restaurants and shops, in addition to a public roof terrace and a green island.

Three of the four towers are already fully grown. The tallest tower, which will reach 233 meters into the sky, is still under construction. It will be the third tallest building in Frankfurt – and the highest office floor in Germany. The towers will be ready for occupancy in the first half of 2024.
