Ziggurat Dubai a Buildable City Pyramid
There was a 4000 meter tall pyramid city called X-Seed 4000 which was designed but was never meant to be built. [first picture on the left]
Now there is a 1200 meter tall, 2.3 square kilometer environmentally friendly building being proposed in Dubai.
- Transport throughout the complex would be connected by an integrated 360 degree network (horizontally and vertically). Elevator cars that go up down and sideways.
- It could house one million people and be provide for all their food, water and energy needs inside the structure
- It would use 10% of land surface that a normal one million person city would need
Mile high buildings are being seriously proposed in the middle east.
Many new skyscrapers and megaprojects (man made islands and more) are being developed in Dubai. Dubai is the place where this project has the best chance of being funded and developed.
Large pyramid buildings are seen in science fiction like Blade Runner.
and Logan's Run
