summary The research that is presented describes the geometrical analysis and the digital reconstruction of one of the most important designs by Le Corbusier: the City of Three Millions Inhabitants; it represents one of the most impressive solutions of the idea of Future City done during the XX Century, and a lot of its architectural elements are now part of contemporary buildings. The aim of the research was to understand the main morphological aspects of it and compare the different solutions made by the author during his life, starting from the first public presentation in occasion of the Salon d’Automne in Paris (1922) and to reconstruct the 3D digital realistic-textured model of it, in order to realize the video that describes the whole project of the city; the research was done at the Faculty of Architecture of the IUAV University of Venice.
