Dubai based design firm Timelinks has created a concept for a Ziggurat inspired pyramid that would house no less than 1 million people and cover an area of almost a aquare mile.
The structure is carbon neutral and will use natural resources like steam and wind. Its green areas will be used for agricultural purposes. And it also has a public transportation system that runs both horizontally and vertically throughout the city that offers fast connections without any cars.
The plan is to be presented at the Cityscape Dubai exposition to take place at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre October 6-9, 2008.
The pyramid shape has been proven to be sound, stable, and esthetically pleasing, so why not? If they were able to build huge pyramids thousands of years ago, why not an even bigger one today?
