Urbanism has always had its share of utopia. Ideal cities, extreme ideas and megastructures have been known since the tower of Babel.

However, urban planners and architects have had some ideas that were realized. Hausmann's grid in Paris has had it's followers and Le Corbusiers ville radieuse that has been a source for many cities.

More utopian is the work of Gilles Trehin. A 28 year old frenchman who designed Urville.
Gilles' project has become a part of his life, since starting in 1984 he has designed and thought of every aspect on urbanism and megacities.
