Ziggurat Pyramid Dubai: The Most Funkiest Project ever Envisioned

Ziggurat was unveiled at the recent Cityscape Dubai. It is by far the “funkiest” project ever envisioned. Ziggurat is an environmentally sustainable futuristic city housed inside a pyramid. The city will employ natural renewable energy resources of solar, wind and steam making it completely self-sustainable in energetic terms and supported by a carbon neutral system producing zero carbon dioxide emissions. The power of nature is going to be harnessed to support a million people in this city. The project is being undertaken by Dubai based environmental design company Timelinks.

“Ziggurat communities can be almost totally self-sufficient energy-wise. Apart from using steam power in the building we will also employ wind turbine technology to harness natural energy resources. Whole cities can be accommodated in complexes which take up less than 10% of the original land surface. Public and private landscaping will be used for leisure pursuits or irrigated as agricultural land”, said Timelinks, MD, Ridas Matonis.

A horizontal and vertical integrated 360 degree network will be the mode of transportation in this city of the future, making cars redundant. Facial recognition technology for security purposes is another interesting feature that is going to be incorporated in Ziggurat Project.

The ginormous pyramid will cover 2.3 square kilometers, will be able to sustain a “community” of up to 1 million and will have plenty of green spaces for recreation and agriculture.

    I want to work for this project. What I bring to the table is social architecture based on equality for women.

    Please contact me.

    This isn’t actually going to be built. It would waste so much money and do hardly anything for the enviroment. It’s frightening how much money are in so many people’s hands that they can concieve producing these types of things.

    Funny, it looks a lot like the city buildings in the Appleseed movie.

    @jesse wouldn’t do anything for the environment?

    it houses 1million people in less than a 1mile by 1 mile square. and is nearly self sufficient. a regular city with those stats? lets take houston for instance, USA’s 4th largest city houses 2.1 million in 656.3 sq miles. think of that, two of these buildings in two square miles, houses the equivalent of a 656.3 square mile city. it also contains farms, so not only does it contain a city of that size, its also saving the land usually containing farms.

    i mean i can see many ways to make this building even better such as: forget wind power (its been proven to be countless times inferior to solar), close the pyramid to contain even more farms, housing, and businesses

    closing it would also allow 2 faces to be completely covered in solar panels (have a point facing directly south) while leaving small holes for windows, those solar panels would also most likely produce more power than that city needs, which could be sold to other cities for profit.

    Think the way that “community” is in quotation marks speaks volumes.

    Hi this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated+ACE-

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written+ADs- I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hi+ACE- I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100+ACU- certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
